No windows. Lots of "doors" (although none you'd want to enter or see anyone coming out of lol)

Three of of Salisbury Cathedral's 365 windows:



"As many days as in one year there be,
So many windows in one church we see;
As many marble pillars there appear
As there are hours through the fleeting year;
As many gates as moons one year do view;
Strange tale to tell, yet not more strange than true"

Unattributed but quoted in Daniel Defoe's "From London to Land's End"

This is the pansport gate, that used to mark the boundary of Elgin Cathedral's grounds. The arrow slots are an 18th century addition.
