"Painted ladies" Architecture Tip by goingsolo
Architecture, San Francisco: 26 reviews and 52 photos
In the Alamo Square District, you'll find this row of restored Victorian homes each painted a different color. This area contains the largest concentration of Victorian homes within the city. Many burned during a fire and others were demolished because, I was told, the city felt they were not salable.
This row of houses known as the Painted Ladies is somewhat famous. This is another one on those San Francisco spots considered a sight to see. The exterior houses featured here were used as the setting for several television shows, including Full House, a fact that seemed to make everyone even more excited about viewing them.
