  • Surprisingly, it was in a "rustic" Osh see this monumental staircase. It connects the lower town to the upper and something like a staircase in Nizhny Novgorod. On average in the 20th century monument Charles de Batcu (prototype of d'Artagnan). If you are tired to climb to 35 metres, along the way there are rest areas with fountains. In October 2016 went renovation works.

  • Beautiful staircase which leads to the Cathedral. Do a beautiful time to enjoy the view of the Cathedral on one side and the Pyrenees across the caine.

  • We came by car and therefore climbed upstairs, towards the center of the city. There very cute. And most importantly, we didn't have to climb, on which all the complaining. Staircase really is very steep and long. We, on the contrary, descended from above in the monument, gaskoncu sfotkalis' and climbed back. Now on the stairs goes great repair, and it spoils appearance at its top. And we liked the town, despite the fact. that it started raining.
