Thursday Doors, Évora in Portugal

I like doors (and windows), I especially like old doors, you may have noticed?  I cannot help but wonder how many people have passed through or looked through them and what stories they could tell.  Here are some old doors and windows from the city of Évora in the south of Portugal.

Thursday Doors, Portugal

Beja Door 007

I spotted this door in the city of Beja in Alentejo region of Portugal and decided that it deserved a post all of its own.  I hope that you agree.  I was left wondering who this noble looking woman may be?  Perhaps she lived there some time?

Turns out to be the work of a Portuguese street artist called Daniel Eime (maybe) and there are lots of examples of his work everywhere in the country.

Odeceixe is a village in the northern part of the municipality of Aljezur, in the Portuguese Algarve, lying within the Nature Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Vincentine Coast. The village lies on the south bank of the Ribeira de Seixe, which at this point forms the border between the Algarve and Alentejo.

It has some very fine doors…

The small town of Puerta de Don Fadrique in Andalusia makes the extravagant claim to be the prettiest in Spain.  It certainly has a good selection of doors.

Thursday Doors – Vic-Sur-Aisne in Northern France

Vic-Sur-Aines France Picardy

Vic-Sur-Aisne turned out to be a rather interesting town. During the First-World-War it was almost permanently on the front line with fighting never far away. It sits equidistance between the major battle sites of the Somme to the north and Verdun to the east. What made it important was that it was a major railway interchange where troops would be transferred back and forth to the battle lines in between front line duty and periods of rest or to be hospitalised.

This meant that it came under regular enemy fire and even today the older buildings in the town show pock-marked battle scars where shells and bullets had picked away at the stones and the bricks.
