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

Romanesque architexture is noteable for the evolution of arches as a strong structural feature, particularly as vaulted ceilings. It is not as heavily ornamented or oposing as Gothic Architecture, employing a certain simplicity and slenderness in it's lines.
