Are these Flying Buttress* (arc-boutant) stairs in Beirut?

the yellow light in this alley (that one might think to be dark first) caught my attention, perfect to highlight the arched entrance and stairs.

A few meters away, there is another. Beautiful.

Soon, to be gone.

*flying buttress: a buttress that stands apart from the main structure and connected to it by an arch mostly associated with Gothic church architecture

  1. Beiroet, wat een stad
    It's fun to see the contrast between the modern building and the arch.
    Soon to be gone Does this mean that the arch will be destroyed soon? Gentrification again? Is it in Furn El-Hayek?
    Need a Quantum jump to be right at the doorstep of Beirut^^

    Sad was the news of May.
    Be safe.
