The Stairs of Montreal

Montreal is an interesting city, with interesting architecture.  One of the features visitors seem to admire are the outside stairs, which you find in many quarters of Montreal.  Quarters like Plateau Mont Royal or Villeray have lots of these older homes and you see street after street lined with staircases and little balconies decorated for the season. The other day I went to Villeray and I took these pictures.

    1. I am happy that you like the pictures of these houses. I don’t have to go very far to take pictures of Montreal because I live quite close by in a suburb. Yes, and I have always been fascinated by those stairs.

  1. also, wenn man diese Bilder sieht, denkt man nur noch ans Umziehen. Man möchte dort gleich wohnen, einziehen in eines dieser wunderschönen Häuser mit den einladenden Treppchen, die nach oben führen.
    Dass Montreal so schöne Wohnviertel hat, macht die Stadt einfach lebenswert. Schade, dass sie so weit weg ist von hier. Sonst könnte man ja dort mal herum spazieren. Eine wunderschöne Stadt.
