The purpose of the bibliometric analysis proposed in this paper is to know the main characteristics of the volume of publications registered in the Scopus database during the period 2016-2021 in Latin American countries, achieving the identification of 347 publications in total. The information provided by the said platform was organized through tables and figures categorizing the information by Year of Publication, Country of Origin, Area of Knowledge, and Type of Publication. Once these characteristics were described, the position of different authors regarding the proposed topic was referenced by employing a qualitative analysis. Among the main findings of this research, it is found that Brazil, with 187 publications, is the Latin American country with the highest production. The area of knowledge that made the greatest contribution to the construction of bibliographic material referring to the study of synaesthetic influence in architecture was computer science with 174 published documents, and the type of publication that was most used during the period mentioned above was the journal article, which represents 48% of the total scientific production.
