These structures are specific for having elements like courtyards or terraces.

Mediterranean houses have some elements that raise their aesthetics. For example, they have porticos supported with Doric columns, balconies with parapet walls, and colonnades with keystones on the top. There can be chandeliers and mantelpieces inside, and gardens, with decorative landscape plants, and fountains outside.

The buildings can have open porches, divine towers and tall turrets, spiral staircases and a loggia(a chain of arches supported by columns). The houses can be situated next to the ocean or built in the hills. Most of the houses have window grilles made out of wood, because they have to withstand different weather conditions like rain, sun, wind and salt from the sea.
