Doors Part 3

 


This gorgeous door above is in the Medina in Marrakesh, close to the Souk de Teinturiers, as is the one below. I think they may be entrances to mosques, but I'm not sure. The entrances are truly inspiring, anyway.

 


 


This is a doorway in a Berber house in the Ourika Valley in the Atlas Mountains, on the way to Setti Fatma. The colours of the paint on the door and the walls are quite stunning. The house stands by the river, shaded by trees and the water powers a small mill.

 


This glorious combination of terracotta walls and blue doors and shutters is at Setti Fatma.

Dear Sue,
All of you photos of door and door knockers are beautiful and colorful. This has been really exciting to have the rare opportunity to see so many doors today!

Dear Sue
I have only been to Setti Fatma once - it is rather wonderful and very different to Marrakech.
Love you exotic doors
