I just knew you would have something fabulous for us today. Just lovely.

So, a "renovation" in the 19th of the 15th?! Gorgeous door! Great theme day photo!

Stunning piece of art. When the portal is so beautiful, it's hard to imagine the grandeur of the interior.

Not often that a doorway is art. Just a beautiful shot - I wonder who has walked thru theses doors and did THEY comment its beauty?

So very interesting. I wonder who decides on the ornamentation for a church door like that?

It is quite beautiful.
