It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for the Fun Foto Challenge entry.
Below are a few photos of steps, stairs, but no ladders (never thought to photograph a ladder, guess I will do so next time I come across one!).
The first one is of the Spanish Steps in Rome. The photo was taken back in 2004, when the building at the top of the steps was being renovated. There are 138 steps and the steps connected the Spanish Embassy, which used to be situated on one side of the stairs, with the Holy See and the Piazza at its bottom is also called Piazza di Spagna.
The second one is of the Château de Fontainebleau’s famous horseshoe-shaped staircase, which dates from the reign of Louis XIII, is based on a Renaissance model, and was the work of Jean Androuet du Cerceau. This sprawling palace is a veritable showcase of French architecture from the 12th to the 19th century.
