A wooden window grill in Plaza del Conde del Real, Valencia (Spain). The structure was probably used as a stable.

A grille or grill (French word from Latin craticula, small grill) is an opening of several slits side-by-side in a wall, metal sheet or another barrier, usually to allow air or water enter and/or leave and prevent larger objects (such as animals) from going in or out.[1]
