STUNNING Antique Spanish doors

Segovia and the older cities of Spain are full of gorgeous, ornate wooden doors which I would love to be able to pack up and bring back home with me, but with the price of checking bags these days it's just not an option. However, one can acquire such goodies in the states from wonderful companies such as Portera Doors, who lovingly restore antique Spanish doors in California. ...Oh if I was a rich girl...

Does the door above look familiar? Remember the chest from the Castle Alcazar in this post?
The two images below are the chest -

So - over the next couple of weeks I'm going to try and take pictures of all the gorgeous doors around the city so you can compare for yourself!

wow. these are so beautiful! i think what is so appealing about doors like this is their sense of history...i wonder WHO carved this, and WHEN...and how many people have touched this?!
it's fascinating!
it's also so nice to see something that was handmade...with so many lasers and machines making things these days, it's refreshing to see a piece that may have taken months to create.
