Fonoyll, Raynard (fl. 1331–62). English master-mason. He built the south cloister of the Monastery of Santes Creus in Catalonia, Spain (1331–41), and the Church of Santa Maria, Montblanch, Spain (from 1352). He also seems to have worked at the Cathedrals of Tarragona and Lérida, the Royal Monasteries of Pedralbes at Barcelona and Poblet, and the Town Church of Morella. He is of importance in the history of Spanish architecture because his work is the earliest-known Curvilinear Gothic in the Iberian peninsula.
