Address 893 Filbert St San Francisco, CA 94133, USA

Popular with locals and tourists alike for many years, the city’s steep streets gained international fame thanks to Bullitt.

With a slope of 31.5% in places, Filbert Street connects Lyon Street, next to the Presidio, and Telegraph Hill. It ends with stairs, close to the Coit Tower, an Art Deco monument built in 1933, reaching a height of 64 meters. It is located not far from the Saints Peter and Paul Church, a Roman style religious building, whose foundations date from 1884. It was rebuilt after the great earthquake of 1906. The section where the steps are located is also famous for its wild parrots. They were even the subject of a documentary in 2003.
