Thursday Doors – July 28, 2016

Let’s go back to ancient Greece for today’s Thursday Doors sponsored by Norm 2.0 .

The one and only image today is of the door which leads to the gate which leads to the Acropolis at the top of the hill in Athens, Greece. This picture was taken in May of 2001.

This doorway, which is known as the Beulé Gate, or west gate, was built in the third century AD (around 267 AD) to defend access to the Acropolis. If you look though the opening in the picture, you can see up to the Propylaea, the monumental gateway to the Acropolis, which was built around 450 BC.

If I were to stand in this doorway, my head would only be about a third of the way from the door sill to the lintel.

I will save pictures from the Acropolis for a later post.

  1. Really looking forward to your Acropolis pictures. As a student I slept on the flat roof of a hotel in Athens and the Acropolis was first thing I saw when I sat up on my camp bed in the morning. That was so long ago…..I had just left school and it was the final year of Greece having a King!!!! This picture has brought back many memories. Thank you for posting .
