Romanesque architecture is a form of architecture used generally in the late 11th and 12th Centuries. It evolved into Gothic Architecture in differing times in different places.

Romanesque architecture is notable for the evolution of arches as a strong structural feature, particularly as vaulted ceilings. It is not as heavily ornamented or opposing as Gothic Architecture, employing a certain simplicity and slenderness in its lines.
