Just in time for Holy Week, a holy staircase believed to be “stained with Christ’s blood” from the crucifixion is open to Christian pilgrims after 300 years of being closed off.

The 28 steps of Rome’s Scala Santa, or “Holy Stairs,” are believed to be part of Pontius Pilate’s Jerusalem palace where Jesus was tried before being sentenced to crucifixion.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I already did it when it was wooden steps but it’s much more moving now,” one pilgrim told AFP News. “If you think about the fact that Jesus was here, and where he was held and where he suffered, it’s very emotional.”

DML News offers the following additional information published by DailyMail:

The marble steps Jesus is believed to have climbed before being sentenced to crucifixion have been unveiled after 300 years.

The Scala Sancta, or Holy Staircase, had been encased in protective maple wood since 1723 in a bid to protect the steps from years of use.

But it has since been stripped back and restored with pilgrims now flocking to see the sacred steps. Three small bronze crosses are embedded in the marble and there are spots some believe are stained by Christ’s blood.
