...Gothic-Plateresque to Renaissance-Plateresque is said to be marked by the publication of Sagredo 's Medidas del romano in 1526 , and the end of the Renaissance-Plateresque is deemed to be marked by the publication of Villalpando 's translation of two books of Serlio 's Architettura in 1552 .

...of the 15th century, principally in Castile. The developing early Renaissance style in Spain during the first half of the 16th century is also called plateresque, but in this later phase the builders were influenced by Italian designs and the architectural decoration, though often far more lavishly applied than in Italy, was based on a classical vocabulary rather than a late Gothic one.
