The [Moorish] Doors

Some of my favorite doors on the narrow streets of the Moorish District of Frigiliana.

(Click for a closer look.)


Check out the open door on left, second row from top.
That first step would make me think twice about breaking on through (to the other side).

  1. Beautiful. Many are not unlike the doors here in New Mexico. I love wood doors with carving and texture and bold, cast iron fixtures.

      The fun thing about Frigiliana is that they're so noticeable being one after the other on the narrow streets. It made my job easy. I used to love wandering the old towns of Connecticut (and Boston's street) admiring the doors. I've never done the same in New Mexico!

      I could, too. I had a friend who actually bought old doors in Italy and had them shipped to his home in Los Angeles.

  3. I remember being in Seville and Toledo and peering trough doors into wonderful courtyard oasises (sp?).

      The discoveries behind those doors are magical in Sevilla and Toledo. You think you're looking at a boxy home only to discover spectacular interior gardens. Not as common on the streets of Frigiliana since so many of the houses are built right into the rock hillside.

      Those posters, like "The Doors of Dublin," are my inspiration.

      All you need to do is hop on a plane, fly for a day, and then drive to Frigiliana.

  7. wonder what is behind each of the doors - who lives there, what lives do the people lead?

      Well, we did meet an English woman with a cat in the house opposite the studio.
