This is a very unique way of looking at an area! I love the stairs with the ramp for strollers (prams), but I don’t know if I would trust myself pushing my child up that huge incline! Here in the Midwest United States the land is mostly flat, so we don’t see a lot of stairs here, except the few in front of buildings.
You may have noticed that recently steps have featured heavily in my posts, mainly because of my intention to compete in the Med Steps challenge coming up this spring. Well that got me thinking and do you know there are an awful lot of steps around Gibraltar?It might have something to do with the fact we live on a flipping great big rock and there is a lot of gradient going on!
Another reason for steps is that they take up a lot less space than roads and for many people they are the only way to access their homes, particularly in the pedestrian reliant narrow lanes and passages of town and upper town.
