Thursday Doors: Loches

The town of Loches, in central France (not far from Chédigny) was, in medieval times, the seat of the kings of France and there are many interesting – some long-neglected – doors in and around the old citadel that dominates the moderrn townscape.

At the base of the citadel is this door, that obviously hasn’t been used in a very long time:

And nor has this one, which comes from a time when disabled access was not something anyone thought about:

For sumptuousness of decor, though, the main door of the Collégiale church is impressive:
