Once used to carry water to the citadel, these 187 steps carved into the limestone cliff now take visitors from the city down to the sea.

Well, it is steep and the stairs seem endless (especially when you go up ;) ) but if you take breaks it is not too bad. The view of the cliffs and blue waters are worth the effort.

Go for it and for the great sea views, only if you are fit enough. 186 steps carved in the cliff, unequal and sometimes slippery.

We saw photos at the ticket office and it looks awesome. Nothing was mentioned about how horribly steep the staircase is. As a 5.5 month-pregnant woman, i think that 187 steps would not be that bad since i still go jogging several times a week...More

If youa re fit, go for it. Great views of the sea, well worth the effort. Make sure you do not go in the middle of the day when it is very hot.

The legend about stairs is much more interesting than stairs itself. I would not recommend it for over 50 people. Just because your heart rate doesn't need any new challenges with no great reward at the end. These are stairs and museum at the end....More

Some nice views and cool to walk through the cliffs. Worth the effort of climbing back up the stairs. It takes about half an hour
