Sporty or not, descending this Stairway, you will encounter the most remarkable view! And this will encourage you to exercise those legs!


The King of Aragon’s Stairway is unusual, and according to a legend, was built overnight by the hands of the King of Aragon’s troops in 1420. Having descended these 187 steps you will be astounded by the numerous and incredible views of the sea, Sardinia, and the cliffs, all at 180°.


Walk on water

A few metres above the sea, following a path built into the cliff, you will walk alongside the blue turquoise water. Thus coming to the Saint Barthelemy soft water well that was naturally tunnelled by the Stairway. No longer in use today.


Kids, you can challenge your parents!

After having climbed the 187 steps, you will receive a diploma for your courage! This diploma is given to the adventurous kids up to 11 years old.

Enjoy this incredible and unusual challenge, in Bonifacio!
