Thursday Doors: Porte du Peyrou and beyond

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

This week and next will be my final door posts from Montpellier, southern France.


After my husband and son dragged me from the side street and alleyways (just kidding), we made our way to the Porte du Peyrou.  The arch was designed by Francois Dorbay, modeled after the Porte Saint-Denis in Paris.  The construction of the arch was completed in 1693.


After we passed through the Porte du Peyrou, we strolled the Promenade du Peyrou, through the park, and ended up here at the water tower.


After a rest to look around the city from a higher vantage point, we headed back to wander the streets and found these amazing doors.




The amount of doors I found in one day in Montpellier was just a drop in the bucket compared to the number of amazing doors that wait to be discovered.  Oh well, next time, next trip!

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

Thank you for stopping by!

    Great post. The ones that combine wood and ironwork are true works of art. On the last one I’m just trying to figure out the purpose of those 2 horizontal metal bars on the bottom right… hmmm.

    1. I’ve never been to Nice, but I’ve heard it’s beautiful and would love to visit. If you can, a trip to Montpellier is well worth the effort. Thank you for stopping by, Marie! =)

    My favourite is the set of double red doors at the end with the women’s faces inset in a heart. So pretty.
