A breathtaking view
This staircase begins with the triumphal arch, which was built in honour of Our Lady in 1595, by James Bragadin. The remaining construction work began in 1746, by Francesco Muttoni, featuring complex architecture. Hundreds of pilgrims still flock to this staircase, which is 700m long, and divided into 150 arches, which are themselves divided into groups of ten, symbolizing the 15 mysteries of the Rosary and the Hail Mary. The staircase ends in a clearing in the middle of the hill, from which you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the city below.
