One of the very few places in the old City of Senglea, Malta, which survived the countless day and night air-raids of WWII. These old steps, made of hard-wearing lower coralline limestone, lead from the once very busy Senglea sea-front to the centre of the City. Only time can tell how many people of different nationalities have made use of them since their construction during the time of the French Grand Master Fra Claude de la Sengle (who ruled between 1553 and 1557) some 450 years ago.
