The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.
Like any move to a new country, a lot of details were involved and there was a whirlwind of activity as my husband and I, along with our son, moved to Perpignan, France. But, I’m pleased that the dust storm has passed and we are settled in.
Thirty kilometers from the Spanish border and thirty minutes from the Mediterranean Sea, Perpignan boasts more than 200 days of sunshine a year. Sunshine makes me happy! The weather is beautiful and the people are friendly.
Now that I’m settled, it’s on to discovering new doors along with incredible architecture and amazing sights in this city. I’m very excited to have already found so many interesting and full of character doors in Perpignan!
I’ll start with this photo that was taken from inside, looking out through the doorway, of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist which was built in the Gothic architectural style of 1324. Unfortunately, the outside of the building is covered in scaffolding, so, I couldn’t get a good shot of the cathedral itself. Not yet anyways. I have time. The inside was magnificent with a grand pipe organ and artwork covering the walls.
The narrow and twisting streets and the architecture in the historical center of the city was greatly influenced by its neighbor, Spain.
I discovered the following intriguing and majestic doors on my first visit …
Thank you for stopping by!
