The Doors of San Miguel..and How About Them Knockers!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, San Miguel is a city of spectacular doors. As virtually every home in the historic core of the city is situated behind a wall that faces the street, they all have doors, and the citizens take great pride in having a beautiful one! Houses in San Miguel are "inside-out" compared to our homes. The yards are contained within the walled compound and the house is usually built around a central courtyard. It is a much more private and appealing way to live and many of the courtyards are nothing short of jaw-droppingly beautiful. So behind the thousands of doors lies thousands of magical gardens. Here are just a few of the magnificent doors we found on our wanderings. Click on any picture to open the gallery!

And of course..how about them knockers!
