Holy Stairs (Scala Sancta) and Chapel of San Lorenzo Tours and Tickets

star-4.5
39 Reviews

Among the most sacred Catholic sites in Rome, the Scala Santa (or Holy Stairs) is a solemn destination for believers—from pilgrims to popes—who would climb the 28 marble steps on their knees in devotion. The original stairs, which lead to the Chapel of San Lorenzo, are now closed, although a faithful and equally beautiful replica remains open to the public.
