On the other hand, central Santa Barbara allows tourists to see how the architecture at that time was conceived. The design of buildings, and details showing the relation each building had with the historical concept of those times is also helpful when looking at the Hispanic architecture. A roof design, for instance, has a colonial style that can also be observed in colonial cities such as Cartagena, Mompox or San Juan in Puerto Rico. Santa Barbara has maintained its commitment to the architectural preservation. New laws were put in place to eliminate any disrupting effect of new constructions on the harmony of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. New constructions, especially in El Pueblo Viejo, must follow strict city regulations to maintain the historic architecture. When in Santa Barbara, Kenny Slaught suggests recognizing the efforts that the city has made to contribute to the preservation of the unique architecture, even if this does not perform the American style constructed in the area as a result of the British presence in the area that considerably influenced the way how local architecture has evolved.
