The famous 99 steps in St. Thomas is actually 103 steps!
Built of yellow brick brought from Denmark in the holds of ships, the steep steps were expertly crafted and have stood the test of time.
They lead up to Blackbeard's Castle, one of five National Historic Landmarks in the US Virgin Islands.
It was said long ago that "he who climbs up shall never marry, so the local people use it only to walk down."
This historical notecard is a great gift. 🎁
