サン・ジョヴァンニ・イン・ラテラーノ大聖堂の、本当にすぐ近くです。段数はさほどありませんが、一生懸命のぼっている方もおり、カメラを向けるのは失礼かなと思いました。キリストが歩いた階段ということですが、そうだとすると信者の方にとっては、聖地でしょう。It is close to San Giovanni in Laterano.

The steps are clearly very important to many of the visitors and it is interesting to understand their history. However the church itself is much less impressive than many other churches in the city.

Make sure you are ready for a grueling task. Climbing the stairs on one's knees is painful. It is therapeutic and invigorating. It is incredible to contemplate that one is tracing a small part of the path Our Lord took on Good Friday.
One day I will going to there. To praise n worship My Lord Jesus.
