I seem to have spent a fair amount of my time in northern Spain photographing the front doors of buildings. The range of detailing on these doors made them incredibly fascinating.
A plain but classic Spanish wrought iron door handle in Laguardia.
Another classic Spanish-style door knob and lock; note that the lock has been retrofitted to take a much smaller key!
A simple door knob on a highly decorative door.
A slightly more elaborate door knob on a slightly less detailed door.
A fancy door knob on plain door. Many times door knobs are placed in the middle of the door making it a little tricky to close the door. (Laguardia)
This knob is also placed in the middle of the door, and again is more decorative as befits the elegant ‘modern’ door that it is attached to. (Laguardia)
This is not a knocker, it’s a door knob and handle. It is somewhat tricky to grab hold of. This door handle is even trickier to grab hold of! It’s on the door of a hair salon.

You found some real cool knobs and doors. Wonderful entry! 🙂
Strangely enough doorknobs are also a fascination of mine while we are traveling, particularly in Europe. And in Asia it’s the toilets of course. less photogenic I’m sure.
The fourth door looks like it’s had an interesting history. Are those deep gashes just part of several knob replacements or something more?
Toilets less photogenic? What ever do you mean? Anyway we share the same fascination of door knobs in Europe and toilets in Asia. I do seem to have a lot less photos of toilets though!
I just checked and I don’t have any other photos of the fourth door so the gashes must be due to history. There are some very old doors in Spain.
Good ones! 🙂
wow..these are all so cool ! I loved the scissors one in particular and the hand one too 🙂
I especially liked the scissors one too!
