My wife and me visited the Spanish Pyrenees for about three weeks, trekking around, walking in the mountains and visiting a bunch of very old little villages and towns. In this blog I'd like to share some pictures from some wooden stuff I found down there.
First the wooden stuff, in the next blog some iron. You can click the images to enlarge them.
Always nice, wooden doors, this one in a 11th century hermit's chappel at Tella, The door itself surely isn't that old! But it fits nice in the surroundings.
Could use a paint brush... (Benasque).
A nicely carved bench in the Basilica de la Pena in Graus.
In Alquezar, also a medieval town, this decorated cabinet in the Church of Santa Maria.
In the same church a very long cabinet with plenty of drawers. It sure looked like it was made of pine. Nice decorations.
A similar cabinet in Roda de Isabona, in the Cathedral.
In the same cathedral a joined stool of "some importance".
And a detail (the armrest doesn't look very original).
Hey, staked furniture! A bench in the courtyard of the same cathedral.
In the Val de Boi, there are a couple of Romanic parish churches that are quite original yet. In one of them I found this replica of a medieval church bench.
And some typically Romanic (10th-11th century) statues of Jesus on the cross and Maria with Jesus.
