Aberto was the incantation of a charm which opened doors.


On 7 December 1926, Queenie Goldstein tried to use this spell to gain entry to the office of Percival Graves after a regular Unlocking Charm failed to work. However, this spell also failed, leading Queenie to speculate that Graves had locked the door with an advanced spell.[1]


In Portuguese, aberto is the word for the adjective, "open".[2] This spell and Portaberto share a similar etymology, suggesting that the two door-opening spells may be related to each other.
