Doorways of San Miguel

The doorways of San Miguel are so interesting. Not only are they architecturally pleasing, but there is a certain mystique of what lies behind them. Even the plainest of doors can be hiding a lush courtyard, a swimming pool, a gorgeous home. You have to use your imagination unless you happen by when the door is open and you’re able to sneak a quick peek.

There are whole books with page after glossy page dedicated to just the fascinating doorways of San Miguel. I don’t claim to be in their league, but here are a few that I passed by that captivated me.

I always love door pics. Cool padlock! And of course I love #13.

So intriguing!  And very well captured, too.  Does make one wonder what is behind each one.

Beautiful photographs.  Doorways are always fascinating, so much character going on here. I think part of it is, as you say, trying to determine what’s behind them, based on the clues of the door itself.
