Naples Christmas Markets 2018

 

The close bond between Naples and the cribs is so exclusive, that the term “Neapolitan crib” has been purposely invented to describe this tradition, which represents a world of its own.
Both classical characters like the Holy family, the shepherds and the various masters of crafts, as well as famous past and present characters are represented in the little statues of the Neapolitan crib, and year after year the cribs boasts new caricature representations of politicians, showmen and sportsmen.

The crib traditionally develops along the San Gregorio Armeno street, in the historic district of  Spaccanapoli. Here specialized workshops of craftsmen are placed one after the other, selling everything from accessories for cribs to caricatures of famous characters.

Cribs

The city of Naples is reach of artistic and landscape beauties, and the Christmas Market can be a good pretext to make a full visit of the city. In this time of the year, numerous living cribs are staged, especially in the square of S. Gaetano.

Certainly a place not to miss is the church of San Lorenzo, where some nut shells are exhibited, which contains cribs in miniature.
