neutral  TomWalker: I think the "repello" & "cernido" are both types of plaster or stucco; so we need a more specific term to discriminate between them.

Cernidos
Los cernidos son acabados más simples y, comúnmente, los más utilizados en la construcción. Consisten en la operación de extender una capa de mortero de cinco a diez milímetros de espesor, sobre el repello de base con el auxilio de la plancha de madera. Existen distintos tipos como el remolineado y el vertical, que, utilizando el mismo mortero proporcionan un acabado final distinto por su diferente forma de aplicación.

I wonder if this is it. Not my area of expertise but based on the Spanish definition provided above:
Parging is a construction technique used to finish the surface of a masonry wall.
[...]
uses a masonry-based mortar rather than a traditional stucco mixture.
[...]
This material is applied using a standard masonry trowel, and it is generally installed in very thin coats.
[...]
Parging is an economical and easy-to-apply solution for covering unattractive masonry surfaces. It can cover cracks and water damage, or even holes and voids

Reference: 3-coat stucco system

Reference information:
In the US, the 3 coats are "scratch coat", "brown coat" and "finish coat".

But I never heard "cernido" before.
