#ThursdayDoors UNED Cordoba, Spain

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature, hosted by Norm 2.0 allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Everyone is invited to join in on the fun by creating their own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button on Norm’s blog.

I’ve been meaning to take part for a long time, and I’m inspired to do so this Thursday, with the following door.

I’ve been walking through this door every Thursday evening for the last five years. Here’s the casing, which opens onto the patio.


It’s the local headquarters in Cordoba of the Spanish National Distance University in Madrid, where I teach Advanced English to a small group of very conscientious, mature students, who want to learn as much English as possible, because they love it. It’s a very varied class including teachers, nurses, prison staff, hotel staff, a judge, an engineer, a vet, and a soldier.

Students who are registered at the main university in Madrid, can come here to weekly tutorials, where professors encourage, advise, and lecture on Law, Economics, Business Studies, Psychology, History, and Philosophy among other subjects.

It’s a beautiful building, here’s the google maps link with some more pictures.  

It’s a large, twentieth century, town house. which is built around a central patio or courtyard. There is a large open gallery with semicircular arches on two floors, which you can see through the door in my photo. 

This is the artistically latticed iron door itself.


It’s one of my favourite doors, and I look forward to seeing it every week on my way to class.
