Doorways of Les Carmes

As I mentioned in my last post, not only am I constantly in raptures over the windows of Toulouse, but now also the doorways. The doors of Carmes are to thank for that. Their unique colors and details repeatedly stopped me in my tracks.

Gaudí inspired?

Doors ranged from the grandiose…

…to the simple yet eye-catching.

So what’s behind these doors? Here’s a glimpse.

This house belonged to a doctor. See the rod with snakes?

This last door is my favorite. It is so Toulousain: pink brick, white marble, and light blue doors and shutters.
