There are many wonderful doorways in Lucca, but this one in Via Filungo is my favourite. It is really 2 doors, but that old arch brings them together.
The big carved wooden doors are usually open, leading to a private courtyard. They must have once allowed horse drawn carriages through.
The wooden doors have 2 huge knockers.
…and beautiful carved panels.
There is a device above to hold a torch.
I’ll be on the lookout for a better one, but I doubt I will find anything as impressive as this one.
