Thursday Doors, Syros in the Greek Islands

Syros 08

As we walked we passed one hundred year old villas and mansions in various states of disrepair that are too expensive to renovate because restrictive planning laws insist on exact restoration due to their historical and cultural importance.  Instead it is cheaper to build new properties so these neglected fine buildings steadily decay and collapse.  One day they will be gone and that will be a real shame.

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.
