  • It is worth going to see them are beautifully decorated and close to the 16 bird tiled steps. They are also inserted in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful architecture.

  • It's a bit of a tough staircase in San Francisco with ups and downs, but it's great to see another view when you climb up. It's worth your efforts.

  • I counted 483 steps up the the entrance of the tower. I could be off, but I'm definitely within five! Very pretty views and neat houses along the climb.
  • It's calm and colorful. The flowers, many green plants, parrots and nice views at the bay in the middle of the city. I love that place!
