Wow, old doors, indeed! At first I thought it was a regular size door, and a smaller door for a child. But then it looks like a chair sitting to the left, so it must be a regular size door inside of a larger gate, unless the chair is also very small. I guess the circle above is a kind of window or skylight. I like the touch of the metal pipe next to the much older doors. Cheers!

I knew, you would find out, Ryan! The chair is of normal size. And it is a big gate, through which they can carry the harvested grapes. For everyday use the door in the gate is sufficiently big.

The oval on top of the gate is for air circulating. Oval and round openings are a characteristic of buildings constructed in the baroque times, which is in the 17th century. They have wonderful thick walls, as I described in one of the other photos. Most older buildings in this village date back to this period and some of the foundations are even older. May

Hallo May, dieses alte hölzerne Tor gefällt mir aber auch sehr gut! Schönes Foto! Liebe Grüße, Anne

Danke schön, Anne! Eigentlich sind es zwei. Eine Tür im Tor! Du bist unglaublich fleissig, wie machst du das nur? :-)

Liebe grüsse, May

Old door and wonderful door! I'd missed it, May, but I'm glad I've found it now. Best regards, Marilyn

Marilyn, thank you very much! It is a very old door with a cut-in smaller door in a typical old house in a wine region. Wine is being cultivated in this little town for many centuries. Best wishes, May
