FF: From Chefchaouen

As much as I love the beautiful doors of Chefchaouen, I think I love the well-loved old doors with their patches and repairs even more.  Here are some of my favorites for today’s Fixed-it Friday post…

    Why do so many of their doors have what looks like sex-bolts? Decoration, or is their something attached inside?

    • Lori says:

      They may have served a purpose in the Olden Days (fortifying the door?), but I think now they’re purely decorative.

        I am not sure if this is true, but I was told that the purposes of the studs in the outer doors at Golkonda, a 16th century fort in Hyderabad, India was to keep elephants from breaking the doors down. The studded door is visually impressive, and I don’t think there were any successful elephant attacks at Golkonda so maybe it works.

        Great pix, keep ’em coming.
