Thursday doors.

It’s that time of the week again – Thursday doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your 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 below

This is a photo I took of a wonderful church door when I was on holiday in Santa Cruz, in Tenerife.

Iglesia de San Francisco de Asís (Church of St. Francis of Assisi)

 

The Iglesia de San Francisco de Asís (Church of St. Francis of Assisi) is a Catholic church located in the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain).

The church is most famous because it is home to the miraculous image of the Señor de las Tribulaciones, a small picture that represents Jesus Christ. It became famous because after a cholera epidemic and many deaths in 1893, a procession with this image was made through the streets of the city and the epidemic stopped miraculously.

The church also has an important musical archive and an organ built in London in 1862.
