The first day of each month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

A crusader's hospital... Amazing. Looks very much like the entrance to a fortress. Very nice shot.

Although its quite stark it looks inviting.

Nicely done. And a dramatic entryway. I'd like to see the inside of the "hospital" that is now a gallery...

Very interesting iterations of the building's use. I really like its simplicity and the warm, welcoming light.

Reminds me of the hospidale across from the duomo in Sienna which is also now used as a gallery / museum. I believe it, too, was a hospital that dated from the time of the crusades.

Knew I'd find a nice doorway on your blog today -:)

What a stunning doorway - the light within makes it so welcoming somehow. Glad to know it's a gallery space.
