This is one of many ornate doors found at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA
Publishing tycoon William Randolf Hearst spared no expense building this ultra-luxurious hilltop mansion that would serve as his retreat to entertain his rich, powerful and famous friends.
He brought in the finest artwork, artisans, and craftsmen of the time from every corner of the globe.
The place provides an amazing look at a bygone era of opulence; as our tour guide repeated often when we visited, “If it looks like gold, that’s because it is.”
Thanks for looking 🙂
