What people are saying:

A popular local red-net attraction, this 250 steps, with some very bright colored tiles to collage into a variety of graffiti or irregular shapes. It's still a beautiful atmosphere.

Additional Information

Introduction

It was originally an average cement stairway in the slums, the Chilean artist George Selelon refurbished it with tiles recovered from the rubbish, and later added donations from local tourists and his own creations. Each of the more than 200 steps is a painting. On both sides of the steps, it is also a wall with different heights created by tiles. The backgrounds of these two sides are red, and various patterns are spelled out in different colors. Each tile is a story. Some of the tiles on the steps are divided into two pieces, which are respectively attached to the upper and lower steps. When they are put together, they make a complete picture when viewed from the side.
