According to legend, the staircase was dug by the troops of the King of Aragon Alfonso V in the course of a single night during the unsuccessful siege of Bonifacio in 1420. In reality, the staircase descends to a natural spring and a cave located at the bottom of the stairway, and is believed to have been dug by the Franciscan monks long before the troops of Alfonso V set their feet on Bonifacio. Some people say the first steps were carved in Neolithic times, and it has been constantly improved since.

It was carved so the Monks at the Monastery could access a fresh water source.
