One of the most emblematic places of the city of San Francisco is the famous Lombard street, which becomes one of the most curious places you can see in your trip along the west coast of the United States.
Protagonist of numerous films, Lombard It is a street with so much unevenness that, for cars to drive, the road makes continuous zig-zag.
The lower part of this section is an essential meeting point for tourists who we visited San Francisco, which we gathered to make the relevant photos.
Steep curves of Lombard Street in San Francisco in California
Lombard it is a long street that runs along the northern part of San Francisco, from the Presidio park until the Coit tower,
But its famous zigzag stretch, the subject of your future visit, is located in the Russian Hill, very close to the high section of the Columbus Avenue.
To overcome the high slope of this hill, with 27 degrees of inclination, in 1922 it was decided to make a design of the 400 meters of roadway, incorporating pronounced and steep curves, which are combined with landscaped areas.
Possibly in your visit to San Francisco you will have rental car.
In that case you should not pass the opportunity to climb to the top of the hill to live the experience of driving down this famous stretch of the Lombard street.
Of course, you must do it at a very slow speed because of the difficulties it presents for driving and, possibly, because of the long line of cars that will coincide with you to get down the same.
I anticipate that it will be a very curious experience, and you will not be able to say that you have been in San Francisco if you have not climbed into your car through the curves of Lombard Street.
Be sure to watch the video included in this post with the experience of going down that street.
