- Vatican Museum Spiral Staircase; Vatican City
- Unique triple helix spiral staircase in the Museum do Pobo Galego, Spain

A mysterious carpenter appeared and proceeded to build a marvelous spiral staircase. There are no nails in the stairway and it has no center support. The mysterious carpenter disappeared without a word or receiving payment
- Helical Staircase in City Hall; London, England
- The “Tulip Stairs” built in 1635 in the Queen’s House; Greenwich, England (the same location where the famous “tulip ghost” was captured on film by a reverend)
