Such "cushions" or boofim or poofim are typical of Crusader architecture.
Oh, and there is the immovable ladder.
Someone put it there sometime before 1852, when the status quo defined both the doors and the window ledges as common ground.

So no one dares to remove the old ladder.
Please enlarge the photos to enjoy the stonework.
