There’s an old saying in Morocco that you cannot tell a house by its door. It’s a characteristic with deep-rooted religious origins based on the principle of not outwardly displaying one’s wealth. As you wander round an old Berber village, you’ll see many a simple façade and entrance. Inside it is homely, intimate and welcome. Similarly, in the towns and cities, a fairly humble doorway can lead to a palacial residence with courtyards, gardens, beautiful decorations and elegant furniture – and the warmest hospitality you could ever wish for.
