Barcelona, a photo a day

Well…


Some old houses still have wells, often at the entrance. We found this nice one in Sant Pol de Mar, 40 km north of Barcelona, along the coastal road to France.

    Well, what a well.I first thought the bucket and rope were museum pieces. Having said that, I can relate to houses being built around the well. My grandfather's house in Coimbatore, India, had a well factored into our kitchen space. And on the other side of the well was the area for cleaning utensils. This relates to 1940s and 50s.

  5. If you're going to have a well, you might as well adorn it well! Like this. A pretty well and good water! Hard to beat!

  6. are the tile works original? very well preserved and very nice tile, having the well just means they're keeping the old tradition.
    i hope you catch the detail of the door, quite a unique one i should say,,,^0^

  11. Hilda, there probably is water in there, but it didn't look like they use it anymore

  16. How very nice to see, that indeed it might be true, that it is more important to be “with a well” than with a fence.
    Hope that everything is well with you too.
    A wonderful Thursday.
