My Fetish With Spanish Doors

My Fetish With Spanish Doors

I’ve fallen for Spanish doors. Big time!


As I wander down the cobbled alleyways of any Spanish town I have visited, a door, seemingly nailed to the grouted wall, hangs. Each door I see is unique in size, shape, colour, style and material which ceases to become tiresome. In my defence I am from Australia where when it comes to doors usually bigger is always better. Where as here in Spain, it is certainly the opposite. Some Spanish doors are so small you have to crouch through to enter, yet still possess a ‘Wow’ factor and an individual flare.


Come on, how could you not fall in love with these beauties?!

  • […] Beneath, etched into the chalk cliffs is a jumble of white villas seemingly stacked upon one another like lego blocks. Eager to probe and wander the rabbet warren, we park up and walk towards the town. Tight alleyways continually hairpin upwards, bringing you closer towards the sandy castle. With each turn emerges another white walled street with a glimpse of something new whether that be a hidden town square, a clock tower, a quaint door that will make your heart melt (yes I have a fetish for Spanish doors) […]

  • Ha ha! Lovely doors! I’ve actually just spent 2 days photographing doors and balconies here in Cusco…

    • Hey Katie, I’m glad to see we share the same obsession 🙂 Mine started in Western China and has never left me. Cusco, Peru… very nice! Does that mean a Machu Picchu climb is in order?? Prue
