Thursday Doors: Saint-Martial-sur-Isop – Finale (almost)

This will be the final set of doors from the nearby village of Saint-Martial-sur-Isop, although we haven’t quite seen the last of what it has to offer…

Last week we faded out to grey and now we’re picking up where we left off. The legend over the larger door reads ‘Vins en gros’ and the date 1895, so this used to be the premises of a wholesale wine merchant.

It wouldn’t be a village if it didn’t have a church and this one, although quite small, is very interesting. The original building is believed to date back to the Carolingian period (987-1268), although what’s visible today is 12th century (with subsequent renovations and additions).

And finally, as regards doors, some houses in rather better condition than some of the ones we’ve seen:

Next week, before moving on elsewhere, some of the gates to be seen in Saint-Martial and Saint-Barbant.

  1. These doors are in much better shape than many you share, which is kind of fun. πŸ™‚ I like the way the stone work surrounds the church door in an irregular but attractive way. The interior shot is lovely, too.


  2. Love the stone building with the arched gray doors. The strong, rough textures in the stone building and roof make the seemingly smooth gray doors pop. Nice collection!

  3. love that brown door with the screen! And I see that they put something crocheted (?) on the railing of the stairs! A good thing for the hands:)

  4. Absolutely beautiful shots. That first one is hard to beat. I just love the weathered look of those doors πŸ™‚
