Thursday Doors

sintra portugal quinta da regaleira

I took this photo in  the old quarter of Sintra, Portugal, in the grounds of Quinta da Regaleira. It would have been nice to see what was inside, but it was locked. Seeing as it was in the grounds of a palace, I was probably photographing the door of a garden shed.

Thanks to Norm, you can join in the fun by creating and sharing your own Thursday Doors post anytime between Thursday and Saturday morning for entry into that week’s selection.

  1. Jean, you visited Portugal! 🙂 Sintra is such a beautiful place isn’t it? Where else have you been? Loved the photo, pretty locked doors always trigger our imagination and creativity 🙂

  2. I loved Sintra, Cecilia. I definitely have to go back there at some stage. It was the most interesting heritage place I’ve ever been so far. Budapest came a close second with it’s Fisherman’s Bastion and it was a fabulous place for a city break, even in January.

    That’s a very interesting door. Well worn and I like what appears to be a vent.

  4. There was so much to see that some of the more ordinary things (like that little door) easily got overlooked. You can take a virtual tour at this link; http://cliente.digisfera.pt/regaleira-2.8/

  5. Well, if that is a garden shed then I want to see what magical tools they have inside. 🙂 That is a beautiful door.

    Wonderful image, Jean. I love the “magic” and “mystery” of an old door. This is another place I’ll need to put on my “to go” list!–Patti

  7. Wonderful door. You don’t see too many pink doors. Great catch. 🙂

  8. If you saw the palace, done in a Gothic style, you would understand why that door might not be photographed by too many visitors. I’ll post a photo of one of the doors inside the palace next time, Judy.
