Mas Oms has some very special doors! Several of them were on the property when I bought it and were ripe for restoring and re-purposing.
I had some professional help with these very chunky wood doors:
Xevi (my door guy) put them in “the bath” of paint stripping and bug killing goo and then filled in the bigger cracks and holes.

This beauty is another entry door to the right of the main entry. The openable panels are called porticones. We added glass to give the option to open for extra light (but not weather or bugs).
Entrance to the family suite:
Almost matching doors side by side in the upstairs hallway. They lead to the powder room and bedroom #6.
And finally, double doors leading to bedroom #7:
