Great detail of literally golden gates.

When I first saw those gates, I stood in awe - they are so beautiful! I took several photos of them, of course...but no close-up of the detail like this.

This is a special photo! Thanks!

The gates are so ornate. I can't imagine how they were made or how much they cost. Nice closeup.

Very beautiful and historic. I also like your photo perspective.

J'espère que de ton canapé, tu as pu entendre la musique dans les rues.

Great detail. It is amazing that those small pieces haven't snapped off after all these years. Beautiful though. MB

Gorgeous and intricate.

You asked if I knew what nonpariel meant in French. No I don't but would love to know?

@Olivier : mais le titre parle de lui-même, non ? ;-)

It is wonderful to see how much care was taken with the artwork. Today everything is so functional. Love the cornucopia on the left.
