Windows and doors around the area of Varzea Pequena in Tomar

Some people may wonder why I am interested in windows and doors, and why do I publish photos related to this topic on this site. Well, I’m not particularly interested in this subject, but I just think that in old towns like Tomar doors and windows sometimes draw attention to them, especially for someone like me who have been living for many years in a young modern country like Australia.
