Gothic style window. Predating both the Baroque and Romantic styles is GOTHIC architecture. This is a style that depicts architecture from the mid to late Middle Ages. The Gothic style is the form of design of many of the greatest churches and cathedrals in Europe. Many castles, universities and palaces are also in Gothic style. The term is normally used to refer to buildings which have pointed arches, ribbed roofs, large windows and ornate facades.

This rather terrifying bay window depicts the ancient Greek god Triton, who was the messenger of the big sea. But this window isn’t in Greece; it’s part of the Pena National Palace in Sintra, Portugal.
