Ladies and gentlemen, the beautiful doors of Morocco!
On my first few hours in Marrakech, I noticed the old, repainted, renovated, run-down and pretty doors of the city. Their charming designs delighted me so I took a lot of photos until I became obsessed. There was even a time when all I was looking for were doors, doors, doors! 😀 However, the most interesting ones I saw were at Chefchaouen, nicknamed as “The Blue City.” They’re just not lovely but they’re very photogenic, too! You can’t resist taking a shot when passing them. If ever I’d have a house of my own in the future, I’d certainly design one of my doors like one of these pretty doors below.
Let me start with these 65 photos (out of 76). This is my current screensaver. 😀
Here are the doors in blue.
And here are the doors with no shades of blue.
Some doors are more than a hundred years old. Others might be centuries.
They’re white, blue, red, green, white, purple and pink!
While most of them are arched shape, there are few rectangular doorways, too.
Most doors are adorned with impressive designs and few are plain and artless.
Moroccan doors are unique: arches, domes, decorative tile work, and bold colours – all combined to create a bewitching style.
Geometrical features and flower motifs are evident, too.
If these doors could talk, what stories could they tell?
