Thursday Doors: An Old Brown Door in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter

There are many hundreds, no thousands, of fascinating old doors in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter.

This one really caught my eye because of the its ironmongery . I love the old bolt and letterbox juxtaposed below the new(-ish) padlock. They must be centuries apart.

Great capture! So wished I could have visited Barcelona when my son was living there – I have seen several buildings now from Barcelona since then, and it looks my kind of city to wonder around and do a photo shoot! Have a great weekend!

    Thanks Jesh. An opportunity missed not going to Barca! How lucky your son was to live there. Thanks for stopping by.

There must be something of value behind that door, judging by the size of the padlock. 😉 Nice capture, Helen.

    Thanks Jean unfortunately the door wasn’t open wide enough for me to get a squint in.

Makes me want to re-visit the place!

    Barca is definitely worth more than one visit! We’re going back in September. We’ll look older, but the Gothic Quarter won’t

Nice! Okay so if I ever make it to Barcelona something tells me I need to reserve a day to stroll the Gothic Quarter 🙂

    A day isn’t enough! Make it a week! Thanks for your challenge each week.
