I found this great door when wandering around in the beautiful village of Lindos on the Greek Island of Rhodes.

However, the real point of interest here is not the door, but the mosaic decoration on the steps created with the use of black and white pebbles. Known as Cholkakia Mosaics, this method has been used in the Dodecanese since Byzantine times.

Rhodes is a Greek island approximately 18 kilometres (11 mi) Southwest of Turkey in the Eastern Aegean Sea. It is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands.
