Thursday Doors in Portugal

Taking a closer look at the 'hinged barriers at building entrances'!

It is Thursday Doors today and so I thought I’d share more of my collection of Portuguese doors. Do you recognise any from your Portuguese travels?

I love photographing doors and so I was surprised to discover that whilst there have been a couple of individual door posts this year part one of my door collection was back in October of last year. Nearly as bad as the windows, clearly I need to find more time to share my discoveries with you!

    Like your post! Please check my blog out im from the Uk studying in Guimaraes (Portugal)! I’m very new to this 🙂


  2. Becky, I also love these classic, European village doors and your photos are a great collection. For me, interesting doors are the lipstick on the face of the building, and they make such an impression. ~James

  4. Yes, I recognise most of them 🙂 🙂 Is that looking out from the old church up on top, at Loule?
    I like the grill shot in Olhao too- unusual 🙂 Happy Sunday, Becky, and yes, I do have several shots of that one in Bougainvilea Lane in Tavira 🙂

    • Thought you would!
      And yes well spotted on the one from Loule . . .we were just about to be chased out because she was closing for lunch, but I managed to squeeze in a few more seconds to take this 🙂

    • I love walking past this door, which we do at least once a week when in Olhão as it’s not far from our favourite restaurant. Only seen the fish being grilled outside once though!

  8. Another door fan here, and I found some beauties in Tavira, but didn’t photograph as many as I thought.

  9. Very interesting selection, Becky. Portugal is full of such interesting doors. If any of these were taken in Albufeira, then I might just have passed by them. 🙂
