Name This Door


I figure it won't take two seconds for one of you to name this door, but I thought it might be fun to see.
This time I"m not putting the answer in the tags at the bottom like the last contest! Here we go!

Hmm, name the door? Ok, I'll name it "Fred"! lol

Honestly, I have no idea where this wonderful shot was taken, but I'll take a guess and say the Sacre Coeur.

I agree Sacre Coeur! It was not as well lighted when I last saw it.

If there is a big prize...

Large doors of Notre Dame

VP said...

Notre-Dame de Paris. This is the Sanctuary ring on a door of the portal of the Virgin.
During the Middle Ages, grasping this ring on a church door gave the right of asylum.

Beautiful artistic door!

Alexa said...

It is most definitely Notre Dame. And it is also most definitely gorgeous! Thanks, V --

Virginia said...

Anonymous and Irina were the first to correctly guess Notre Dame. And again VP with Livorno DP has added some interesting information about these doors.
Thank you all for joining the puzzle today!

Tomorrow, I'm taking some friends up on a dare. This blog will sail off in the opposite direction from church doors. Wheeeee!

Well, I didn't know, but it was interesting reading the comments on this amazing door. I will remember the sanctuary ring info - must apply to other famous churches too, I imagine.

Leif Hagen said...

Voila, le porte de Notre Dame! Scrumptious details on that door!
Can't wait for the dare tomorrow..... hmmmmm.

Julie said...

I knew the door, but couldn't get over you putting answers in labels. You are a treasure!!

Maya said...

VP wins this one with all that good info as far as I'm concerned!

Malyss said...

Arriving late, it's easy now to say Notre-dame..:o)But it's one of the most famous and beautyful doors of Paris.

I don't even have to skim the comments above to know everybody likely beat me to this one ~ Notre Dame. I have virtually the same photograph :-) LOVE that door! Interesting tidbit, VP, Merci.
