Who climbs the ramps can not admit to take a look at the floor of the road especially in ramps seven, eight, nine and ten, laterally, especially to the left of salt, has traces of Roman paving (stones in the shape rounded as in the streets of Pompeii in the seventeenth century )....., ramps and tie the convent in an ever more intimate history and function, as evidenced by place names. In fact, what was known as Salita S. Maria delle Grazie, now known in cartography and in the risers, climbing ramps is indicated as S. Anthony Posillipo.? With the opening of the ramps, the church rises to the title of Sanctuary Antonian.
