Central Santa Barbara shows those who are interested how its architecture came to be. The way the buildings are designed and their details helps viewers understand more about Hispanic architecture. The roofs have a colonial style and remind of the ones in Cartagena, Mompox and San Juan in Puerto Rico. Santa Barbara stays committed to preserving its architecture, and implemented laws that prevent new buildings from interfering with the style of the old ones. In El Pueblo Viejo, the guidelines are especially strict. Kenny Slaught recognizes the city’s effort to maintain its Spanish architecture, even when it doesn’t fit the American trends brought by the British presence in the region.
