Malta’s Doors

I love doors and often take photos of them when I travel. I have photos of arched doors in Morocco and intricately carved doors in India. The significance of doors is that they make the first impression to people about you, your culture and your home. On our Christmas trip to Malta I photographed a lot of beautiful doors.

There were perfectly maintained doors, often in bright colors.

Notice the door knockers that adorn some of the doors. Many shops sell them so you can take one back for your own home. I particularly liked the dolphin ones.

What I liked even more than the perfectly painted examples above were these chippy, wonderfully worn doors.

My favorite door was this one in the walled city and former Maltese capital of Mdina.
