Who’s There?

22 Feb


Door knockers are a big deal in Malta. Well, front doors command significant attention too. It could be that the lack of space between the flat facade of the house and the street added to a house being flush with the curb begs for a double doorway with matching door knockers. In any case that is what we see when we visit older villages like Naxxar and Mdina.


Sea gods, goddesses and nymphs are often part of the design reflecting Malta’s relationship with the surrounding Mediterranean.
