Really beautiful old door.
But around there are many wires … Dangerous?

Truly a majestic entrance. The dark green goes well with the rest too.

That ornate door suggests a structure of some strength and importance or wealth. It also looks like it could be restored to its former glory!

Such grandeur in these ruins.

Is that a door, if so it's beautiful.

whoa! It's not looking too good anymore. Is this building still in use?

Another beautiful place left to rot... will this ever change, do you think?

Adoro esse estilo, a porta é simplismente maravilhosa e amo a cor verde. Uma pena estar abandonada!

Such a shame to see the neglect and graffiti. Wonderful craftsmanship went into that structure.

Magnificent.

The passage of time, as they say. It's a beautiful door, with a good colour... the building just needs some attention, but it feels like it's worthwhile.
