Today for Door Day I thought we might look at some more of the fascinating Italian Doors! Sometimes when I am looking for doors I come upon doors that look like there have been different doors in that spot in the past and new doors have taken their place for whatever reason. I always wonder what was the previous door like? Some have an arch where the door would have been and some entrances have been bricked up!

Then there are the doors within the door.  I see these quite frequently at churches. The main doors are massive and quite heavy, so there is a little door in the big door, making it easier to pass through. Look for the pull, that is still above your shoulder! The heavy, giant, door usually has a bolt system on the inside. Is it to keep out unwanted guests?

And then there is the door that looks like it is in the mouth of a grotto!

This is just one of many photos in the Thursday Door Collection featured by Norm2.0!   Won’t you join in or take a peak at all the doors? See you next week!

    Great photos and doors. I didn’t spot the tiny door in the large studded one until I read your post and looked back at it. It blends in very well.

    Wished I had known about Thurs. doors when we were in Italy! Anywhere you look are beautiful doors, but it did not occur to me to take pics! Now I think of it, in the Netherlands (country of origin), there is also often an inside and an outside door in churches. And the space between the two doors was called a portal.
