One of the city's symbols, it is said that the stairs were covered to protect the cildren from rain and snow, as they were going to the school, on top of the hill.

Take these elegant steps to the Church on the Hill and take a look inside. Make sure you have a local tell you the story of the church.

Why is a tourist attraction ? Oh, it's got a roof. Well how exciting. aThe road up is more fun plus it has lots of graves.
