The Scala Santa: Holy Place in Rome

Inside this church, located right in front of St. John Lateran’s Basilica, pilgrims can find the so called Scala Santa. They’re the steps, which according to tradition, Jesus walked up, step by step, on Good Friday, when he was about to go to trial. The mother of Emperor Constantine, St. Helena, ordered they be brought to Rome back in the year 326.
