Thursday Doors: More Side Streets in Montpellier

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.  As is often the case, I am late to the party. It was another busy week with a bit of the flu mixed in.

As promised, this week’s door post is another one from Montpellier, southern France.  The name of the city easily rolls off the tongue.  It’s fun to say!  And, the city was fun to romp around in, especially the side streets and alleyways.

Side streets that open out into hidden squares are especially magical.

This one led us to the Eglise Saint-Roch.  This majestic cathedral was built in 1868.  It is named after the patron saint of Montpellier.

Across the street from the front steps of the cathedral is the Montpellier trompe l’oeil, a building with a blend of real and fake windows and doors.

It was nice to chill a while around the Saint Roch square before heading back out to discover more of the city.

I’ll have more photos of doors from Montpellier next week.  Thank you for stopping by and have a nice weekend!

If you would like to see more doors from all around the globe, visit Norm’s.

    The more I see of this beautiful place the more I want to visit it. All those narrow streets and old buildings…it must be something to see. Great post!

    1. Thank you, Norm! You should certainly visit! Southern France has proved to be a very interesting place. I’ve not traveled as much as I’d like, but over time hopefully will get to more places. The architecture and doors are incredible. I’m having lots of fun! =)

    I like the alley with the colored steps – it looks as though they curve inward.

  8. What a wonderful place to wander! I really like the building in the first shot. Buildings with doors on the corner like that are always fun.
