Immaculate Conception Church (Holy Stairs)

The Holy Stairs are located in the Franciscan Order’s Immaculate Conception Church. The construction of the Holy Stairs Chapel was ordered by Pál Pálffy together with the construction of the monastery. There are Holy Stairs in three places in the world: the stairs of the original Pretorium of Pilate, which Jesus ascended, were taken to Rome. Copies of these can be seen in Jerusalem and in Malacky. The latter consists of twenty-seven steps, into which the relics of St Deterius, St Valentine and St Beatrix were placed.
