The typology of "a portelle" (little doors) altars, spread in the Salento area during the Baroque period, is an architectural solution used mainly for the high altars; it interacts with the religious buildings internal spatiality becoming the scenic quint of separation between areas with different functions. This paper is part of a research started some years ago with the surveys of the most important Salento Baroque altars to provide a graphic documentary basis to support analysis and comparisons. The study aims to draw a significant casuistry of these miniature façades and focuses, in particular, on the type “a portelle” with the scenic quint variants “libera” (free) or “a parete” (wall).
