Photo Diary of Incredible Doors in Morocco

Incredible Doors in Morocco

Since I stayed home all summer, my only vacation of Q3 was spent on a girls trip to Morocco. This was a first for all of us on the continent of Africa and we learned a lot about the history, culture, food, and people within the country. One constant that remained in each of the five cities I visited were the unique designs of the doors and entry gates of shops, houses, and medinas. Since traveling to Athens and Barcelona, I’ve become obsessed with taking photos of architecture in my travels. I had no idea the entry gates and doors in Morocco would be such an amazing site to see. Below I share a photo diary of the beautiful doors I’ve encountered on my trip to Morocco.

Rabat

Our first day was spent in the capital of Rabat. Notable sites included the Royal Palace, ancient ruins of Chellah, Oudaya Kasbah, and the Hassan Tower. On route to Fez, we also made a stop at the Roman city of Volubilis.

Fez

I personally didn’t get to explore much of the city of Fez because I used our free leisure day to visit the blue city of Chefchaouen. Our pickup was in the medina, so I took some photos around our waiting area including a document of independence.

Chefchaouen

Visiting Chefchaouen was a dream come true! The city was absolutely incredible. I think I took a photo of every door, so here are some favorites. Read more about this city in my Travel Guide to Chefchaouen.

Marrakech

Marrakech was a city like no other. The minute I walked into Djemaa el Fna Square, my eyes lit up. In addition to buying argan oil and spices, we shopped the souks for souvenirs for friends and family.

      Yes! I had so many questions looking at each one. The locals and guides were just as eager to
      Share the story about them. Something so simple became a conversation starter.
