Prison door, Piazza Fortebraccio, Montone, Umbria, August 2018

Thursday doors

Door 50

Montone, Umbria, Italy.

Only one door for you this week, but it really is a pretty special door. Sited at the base of the ‘prigione e torre dell’orologio’ (prison and clock tower) at the north end of Piazza Fortebraccio in Montone, this rather small ancient door opens into a prison cell.

I am not sure how old the door is, but the tower dates back to the 14th Century.
