Barcelona has some Very Big Doors

Barcelona does indeed have some very big doors…..

……..but none so grand, in my opinion, as this one at Sagrada Familia Cathedral.

And what about that handle (if that’s what it is) at the top left corner?

Even when I pulled myself up to my full five feet five and three quarter inches, I still couldn’t quite reach it to let myself in.

Like every other square inch of this wonderful building, both inside and outside, the detail is stunning:

And this wasn’t even the main entrance! That was bigger.

To see more doors from around the world, why not pop over to Norm’s Thursday Doors

  1. Not just a big door, but a big door with beautiful details. I like the way it’s divided into four sections and that top left one looks as if you could (if tall and strong enough), grab the knob and slide that section over to the right. 🙂


    1. Thanks for stopping by, Janet. I’m revisiting Barcelona later this year, I’ll have another look at this door!

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
