The Amazing Staircase of King of Aragon



Well, the stunning staircase of The King of Aragon is a stony staircase carved into the vertical side of a limestone cliff in the commune of Bonifacio, in Corsica, France. In French it is called Escalier du Roi d’Aragon actually cuts across the face of the cliff at a near 45° angle and is encompassed of 187 steps. However, from the side of the sea, it looks like a dark slanted line, and from near it appears as a tube scooped out of stone. The staircase was dug by the troops of the King of Aragon Alfonso V in the course of a single night during the ineffective siege of Bonifacio in 1420. Although in reality, the staircase descends to a natural spring and a cave located at the bottom of the stairway, and is thought to have been dug by the Franciscan monks long before the troops of Alfonso V set their feet on Bonifacio. 

Moreover, some legends say the first steps were carved in Neolithic times, and it has been continually improved since. These days you can walk down the steps, stroll along the sea and hike back up again.

Upon looking carefully half a dozen times and you’ll get confused as to which way is up or down.

Therefore, you’ll feel at every step the sound of the sea is nice and increased therapeutically forget stress.
