Thursday Doors – Doors with a history

huize groenweg – gouda

My twenty-fifth entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Doors with a history. This door belongs to a former priory, founded in 1395. The monks helped the victims of the plague. And buried them afterwards in most cases. Nowadays it is an apartment building.

    Beautiful door indeed. Though I’m sure the inside is quite impressive, I’m not sure I’d be comfortable living in a place with such a morbid history. Hmmm :-/
