Hi all! I have enjoyed some of the threads started with photos having a "theme".
I love seeing all the beautiful, quirky, and very old doors we pass by on many of the pilgrimage routes we walk. They often have so much character!
Here's a couple of my many photos to start...

I walked briefly last year with two Swedes,one of whom was by trade a painter. He could not understand how anyone could leave so many doors without a coat of paint.He could not share our love of the doors as they were.

I posted this yesterday, but forgot to include the text. I'm thinking most of the veterans will recognize this door. Do you?
No, I don't recognize it, but with the chicken etched on it, could it be in Santo Domingo?

No, not Santo Domingo. Although not everyone, but a lot of people who overnight in this particular hamlet will have walked through that door.

What a nice variety of doors, Kinky. I really like the close ups of metal handles and locks.I'll copy you and get a few close ups next time.

I've read that hand-shaped door knockers originally represented the hand of Fatima; a symbol with protective significance in Arabic and Berber culture.
