You’ll find them in all sorts of places and on all five continents. Some are the work of amateurs, others by professional artists. They are impactful and awesome. Some tell a story, some simply provide beauty. Here are some of the world’s most beautiful steps.

1. Peace Steps, Deir Atieh, Syria

I’m starting with this example because not only is it a set of gorgeous steps but it has a heart-warming story. The steps are in the town of Deir Atieh in war-torn Syria. A group of students led by architect student Salmo Al-Batal decided to paint the longest public steps in the town so show that Syria is a land of colors not blood and to bring a smile and a little love and peace to the beleaguered townsfolk.
