  • Although you may find similar colorful stairs elsewhere in Sicily, this one is definitely the most beautiful, in my opinion. If you climb to the top, you can enjoy the view of the city and beyond.  more »

  • Caltagirone, the steps of Santa Maria del Monte is a must. Lends often, especially for the festivities, as a set of installations. Colored candles rather than flowers adorn the steps by creating, with skillful games, religious illustrations.

  • The city's symbol was the staircase of Santa Maria del Monte, built in the 17th century to link the two parts of the city: its 142 steps decorated with tiles with traditional Sicilian patterns. Climbing the stairs is an aesthetic pleasure in itself, but it becomes especially striking on the night of July 25, the feast of Saint Jacob, when placed on the steps of the four thousands of burning candles, creating the effect of current lava. From mid-May to mid-June, the staircase is decorated with floral compositions in honour of our Lady, which the city patronizing here called the Madonna Konadomini.
