Palazzo doors, Palermo, originally uploaded by *Tom*.

In a recent trip to Sicily, Tehm and I visited Palermo. Whilst wandering around the old churches, in Piazza Pretoria I spotted these doors on an old palazzo. They really captured my imagination, and in a way sum up Palermo for me. Peeling, faded, remnants of a past grandeur, but still beautiful.

I wonder what’s behind them? I don’t suppose I’ll ever find out.
