San Gregorio Armeno
When you are in Naples, at any time of the year, a must is: via San Gregorio Armeno, the famous street of the nativity scenes.
In San Gregorio Armeno even when it is hot and Christmas is far away, the artisans are at work to build the typical cork nativity scenes and terracotta shepherds; here you can always breathe a magical atmosphere!
Walking among the colorful shops of the street it is possible to observe the artisans at work, while they model the terracotta or finish their shepherds. Chatting with the artisans is a real pleasure: they know how to advise customers and explain to them the meaning and symbolism of each pastor; talking to them, in fact, is like traveling through Neapolitan traditions.
