The Doors of Merida, Mexico

The doors of Merida, Mexico are a treasure trove of visual candy.  Most of Merida’s historic area was built in the Spanish colonial style, with a Yucatanean twist (courtyards with kitchens in the center of the building so the cooking would not add to the sweltering temperatures).

Everywhere, the colonial architecture is crumbling. Expats are pouring money into revitalizing these old homes. But, it’s the crumbling facades that most interest me; so much character and history in these old doors that reflect not only the wealth, the style and the tastes of the builders but also the creative spirit.

 

I wonder who has walked through these doors?  And all the stories that have taken place behind them.
