One of the things that struck me on my very first visit to Toledo two years ago was the multitude of doors, hundreds of years old, embellished with elaborate metalwork.
So, I took some pictures to show you. And please, no disparaging remarks about my lack of photographic skills. The blasted things just wouldn’t hold still for long enough, I swear!
The magnificent Post Office door – it’s about four metres in height. For the first time in my life, I was waiting for a PO to close, lol.
A late night snog in this doorway could get a tad uncomfortable
…and in more detail
From the 16th century, a local passer-by informed me when I took this
Starry starry… door
Mmmmmh… covered in delicious freshly baked buns. Unless you’re a bloke, then all you’ll probably see is knockers. Which any good door should have, I agree.
More on the theme…
…and with knobs on!
To finish off, a nice bit of tiling
I love these doors and there’s nothing wrong with your pics, especially the close ups. I must do a similar project when I am allowed to come over next ; )
And the doors will hold out for you, trust me!
Ok, now I’m jelous you went picture hunting! 😛 Good shots 😉
You could have come. But no. There were strawberries to harvest and chickens to feed…! lol
Very pretty. The Moors left behind an impressive architectural legacy in Spain.
And tons of them – this is only a small selection 🙂
Oh these are superb!
I know 🙂 And they’ve held up well over the last few centuries. Now if only they could talk…
