    Thanks for looking.

    This is a common Architectural style for Mexican churches....very ornate.

    Aren't there any STEPS leading UP to that door???
    Isn't there any handle to open it?
    How are you supposed to walk through this door, if you don't even get there to begin with? :scratch:

    This is a Platonic door, it doesn't need stairs:sexywink:

    It actually has a function during fiesta where the priest supplicates heaven from behind the altar and throws open these doors.....he doesn't go out and nobody goes in.
