n several Arab countries like Morocco, some of the windows are added by a wooden ?moucharabieh?, an oriel window enclosed with carved wood latticework that allows to se outside without being seen. In Kastoria, some structure might at first sight considered as moucharabieh but they actually have been built for another purpose.

The first photo shows one of these structure and the second photo is a close up. This is a metal structure and it seems that it is made with plain iron rods designed for reinforced concrete (second photo). This seems to be actually a protection against theft and nothing else.

The third photo shows a more elaborate one but which obviously has the same purpose.
