17 Unusual Doors From Around the World

Sometimes a door is just a door. And sometimes it is a work of art. And sometimes it makes you want to know what is behind it.

Most of the doors shown here are made out of wood. Some date back centuries and a few are more modern. One is made out of brass. One is made out of copper.

They are painted bright colors or weatherbeaten and raw.

A Royal Family has walked through at least one of these.

Another is really more about the locks and hinges than the door itself.

We have photographed them in across Europe, Africa and here in the USA.

What they all have in common, is that we have stopped and admired each and every one of them as we traveled around the world.
