Colegio Padres Escolapios de Monforte


Remarkable for its width (3 meters), one-piece steps, made of granite so compact that wear and tear is not noticeable for centuries. Three sections (13,9,13 = 35 steps). Skillfully built, it lacks a support for the central section, supporting itself on the strong walls and a game of forces. A few years ago it had to be reinforced with metal braces. Apparently it was built by Pedro Marlote and Juan de la Sierra, between 1594 and 1603. (The construction of the monument began on April 1, 1593) (The founder died in 1600, without seeing the work finished). On the floor, under the arches, you can see the lines, called mounts, as plans, from when the staircase was built
