L’Escalier du Roy d’Aragon

Made up of 189 equally irregular steps, it is a listed historic monument. According to legend, it was carved out of the limestone cliff in one night by the troops of the King of Aragon in 1420.

In fact, this staircase was actually dug to access the Saint-Barthélemy well, a freshwater well. Today, the well is no longer in use and is closed.
As you descend the 189 steps, you'll marvel at the incredible 180° views over the sea, Sardinia and the cliffs. Once you reach the bottom, you'll be just a few metres above the sea on a path carved into the cliffs, and you'll walk alongside turquoise-blue water.
Kids, once you've climbed the 189 steps, you'll receive a diploma for being so brave. The adventure is available for children up to the age of 5.
