Thursday Doors 28/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 2.

This is the second post with the doors around the summer residence of many Popes called Rocca dei Pappi in Montefiascone, as seen on my first visit one month ago.

In my first post two weeks ago uncle, bestia and I reached the highest point of Montefiascone above Lake Bolsena in the province of Viterbo, found the facilities and some doors, and today we continue our stroll in the park and through the streets around the townhall.

And just in case you haven’t yet, give a listen to our host Dan Antion in a podcast with the Clanmother, in which he is talking about Thursday Doors as well. This challenge certainly opens the doors for us that we would otherwise never know and will probably never visit. Thank you for your doors and visits!

This stop was just the first of the day. After that we continued to the ghost town Celleno and the giving town of Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce with all its fairy-tale murals that I’m showing on the weekends with two more posts to go. What a day!

  1. That first entrance offers a bit of an illusion. I wasn’t sure it the door was a door or a window at the bottom. Thanks for the mention. I love this challenge and you always share such interesting doors, Manja. Old, new, work=n and well-maintained, you covered a lot of ground today. I’m leaving the comment first and then stepping into the gallery (in case I can’t get back out). I hope you’re having a great week.

    1. Thank you, Dan. I don’t know if this block, called Gallery, creates the same commenting problems as Stacked. Yes, I was surprised at this setup in the featured photo because while there I just clicked once and moved on and didn’t look at it properly. But I’ll always take a chance on doorfie.

  2. Some wonderful doors.
    The black metal door that was inserted into the original wood door…can’t decide if the modern addition is an interesting contrast or a travesty 🙂

      1. Can’t resist a good doorfie myself, and since Covid’s put my travelling days on hold, I’m living vicariously through your pictures 🙂

    1. Ahh, scooj, this is not good news. Thank you for telling me, you are the first. Are you looking on your phone? I started to use a different block called Gallery. (Before I mostly used Stacked.) On my big screen now the photos are so big when you click on them and look them in the gallery that there is no need for enlargement. If I allow enlargement, I lose captions. Does your viewing experience suffer a lot?
