Doors at Montsalvat

Montsalvat as I have mentioned in my previous post is an artist colony. Here are some of the doors in the 5 hectares of land.

This is the Barn Gallery formerly known as “The Red Brick Barn” or “The Boat Shed”. The building was completely destroyed in 1996 by an arsonist so this large Gothic style door is just a copy of the original oak door.

After this building was refurbished in year 2000, this became a small gallery to exhibit works of residents. Here we can see some courtyard sculptures.

Cubicles used to be bedrooms for painting students. This is the building where we can see the pool.

This is used for the gardening tools. It was refurbished in the mid 1980s and now being used by the gardener, staff and volunteers.

Tiny doors of miniature houses.

The exit door of the Great Hall.

A big gate in the middle of the estate.

This is an interesting cottage with masks inside as seen through the top window … when it’s not even Halloween

There are many more small cottages in this estate with its many doors.

A door to keep the sculptures safe.

  1. That white door to the cubicle looks really cosy.

      I know but I feel somewhat claustrophobic.

    My garden tools are going to feel neglected in their rather drab surroundings, now. These are beautiful little spaces and the grand hall is a very interesting building.

      Thanks Dan. Interesting buildings indeed.

    Beautiful doors to match the beautiful buildings! They’ve done a great job replicating that oak door in particular 🙂 I love the miniature houses too!
