  • It's a cool place, lots of stairs, it will leave you breathless if you're out of shape. It could do with a little help to make the place look less dated and more "good old." There are some musicians that are playing on top of the stairs and that can be good motivation :)
  • Breathtaking. NO, LIKE FOR REAL. If you climb this all the way up you will literally be breathless. Although it's exhausting it's so beautiful and worth climbing. Takes you back in the past
  • Really nice city! Beautiful view, some nice buildings, all and all good to stop by if you're in the area
  • Beautiful stairway leading to an old church and school. Stairway was made in a way that is safe for people to use even in bad weather and conditions.
  • Interesting place. One of the most significant objects that build an unique atmosphere of this beautiful city.
