Door Knocker in Barri Gotic

Door Knocker in Barri Gotic [enlarge]

Door knockers are fascinating and intriguing objects, small jewels of craftsmanship still doing their anonymous work instead of being in some museum showcase, I mean, that's where they ought to be. Barri Gotic or Gothic Quarter in Barcelona is full of them although there are other good examples disseminated around the city. I invite you to check older photographs featuring some interesting designs.


  1. That's one hell of door knocker...I'd be afraid to use it. Amazing craftsmanship and a very good photo, Carlos!

  2. Wow, that's beautiful ART... Thanks for sharing!

  3. Once again, a fantastic picture! Your blog is amazing!

  4. That's what I love about Barcelona--the deep texture.

  5. Qué pasada!
    Hay que fijarse en todo mientras uno camina por la calle!
    Un saludo :)

  6. I always love to notice these kind of details too..I'm not a photographer at all, but I seem to like taking pictures of doors all over the world.

    Hey, nice pic, and post!
    I also visited the Barrio Gotico, thanks to a blog I saw on Barcelona-home. It was a cool neighborhood, and unfortunately I missed that pretty sweet door knocker. Well, I'll be looking for it next time. Thanks for giving me something fun to do.
