Following government decisions, the health pass is required at the entrance to the The King of Aragon’s Stairway. A tolerance will be granted to children from 12 to 17 years old until September 30, 2021.

According to its legend, the King of Aragon’s Stairway, a listed historic monument and picturesque site of Corsica, was dug by hand in the limestone cliff in one night by the troops of the King of Aragon in 1420. In reality , it is to access the Saint-Barthélemy well, a freshwater well, that this staircase was actually dug. Today, the well is no longer in use and is closed.

Composed of 187 steps, each as irregular as the next, it is as you descend them that you will be amazed by a set of incredible views: 180 ° on the river. sea, Sardinia and cliffs. At the bottom, you will be just a few meters above the sea in a path carved into the cliff and you will walk along turquoise blue water.

The children, after having climbed the 187 steps, you will be presented with a diploma for having been also brave. The adventure is offered until the age of 5 years.

What is certain is that you will live a most incredible and unusual experience, only existing in Bonifacio !
