Number 15. Old door. Not sure why they gave up on the wider door. Maybe the corners not clearing the arch might have had something to do with it!

An old door into the past. Sometimes I ask me, when I go through this kind of door, I might land in the past and don`t find the way back to the future :-)
Great shot!

Best regards

Lovely old bit of wood there................I suspect it opens inwards, because it wouldn't clear the sill either?

A nice and sharp, detailed shot Anty.

Now looked at, thank you, Alan. Yes, a good and logical point. I wonder though, this being Spain, whether in fact the door wasn't built first, later followed by the construction of the arched doorway and then they thought; 'whoops! Now what do we do?'. So the only solution was to cut a smaller door in the larger one. (Sorry my Spanish friends, a dreadful calumny, I know!).

Well, for a single person it's easier to open the smaller door than the whole gate. The gate will be open only when it is necessary. But the doorsill speaks against a carriage.

If the small inlet is in the wing of a large gate and has a high threshold, it is also referred to as a manhole (also called manshole or mandoor). The purpose of these doors was to avoid having to open the large and usually double-arched castle gates for individual pedestrians. The great door was for horses and goods ... :-)))
