Doors of Marrakech, Morocco

I just got back from a whirlwind trip exploring Marrakech in Morocco and one of the things that stood out the most to me was all the beautiful doors! All of them are so different and have such stunning details. I could not stop obsessing over how much craftsmanship and eye for design was put into these beauties.
Every picture that I took of a door in Morocco is in this post – I didn’t leave any behind. While you will notice there is an orange theme, that is a popular local color.
I posted my favorite door first – and I think it is because the cat was posed right in front. <3

    What an amazing collection of doors! The stone “lace” around some of the doors took me back to Granada in Spain.

    The one with the cat is awesome. I think she posed just for you to take her picture

    All are brilliant shots – and doors – but the first one arrests my attention. The cat is the initial draw. Yes I am obsessed. But seeing those studs, the smaller door and immense attention to detail screams of that region. I feel like I am there, seeing those photos. Great job!

    This is so beautiful, think the Ben Youssef Madrasa is my favourite!

      It took awhile to get through the maze of the Medina to get there but it is truly spectacular!

    I never thought I’d ever use stunning to describe doors!

    Love the variety of doors – Morocco was the first place I ever wanted to travel too! And it’s still on my list of places to get too – for some reason I haven’t made it there yet! I may have to bump it up in my priority level now to go see all of these doors!
