As I walked around Cartagena today what stood out to me, besides the balconies covered with plants, was the door knockers. Apparently Cartagena is famous for its door knockers. I read that the animal on the door used to represent the principal trade of the families' homes.
But that doesn't seem right, is there a market for iguanas?
Regardless of the accuracy of the history of the door knockers they turn functional and boring doors into works of art.
