According to legend, Escalier du Roi d'Aragon was carved from the steep cliff in a single night during Alfonso V's siege of the town in 1420. In fact, it was constructed earlier by an older Franciscan monk, who devised an easy access to the water source and the cave at the base of their monastery. The staircase leads to the sea, offering you a unique opportunity to swim at the foot of the cliffs. By boat, you can see the stairway all the way up the side of a cliff that looks like a hollow tube in the stone. You can walk the entire 187 steps, inclined at an angle of 45 degrees, overlooking the sea. To visit Escalier du Roi d'Aragon and other attractions in Bonifacio, use our Bonifacio visit planner.

Such a nice experience! Going down those stairs was really nice and scary at the same time time as there was some water on the stairs. The view is super nice, from the top and also when you reach down. They open at 10, I went there I the morning and was not crowded. I enjoyed taking a lot of pictures
Going down those stairs was a bit scary, and I did nearly get an asthma attack but hey the view is worth it! There is a nice breeze by the sea, and the view is beautiful! Careful not to slip!
