Neapolitan Crib Makers

A Baroque church and monastery, San Gregorio Armeno is located in the old town portion of Naples. The façade is composed of three arcades topped by four modest Tuscan pilasters. The interior is covered in ornate gold and lush details from the Baroque period, and also contains the Holy Staircase, used by nuns during penance. The neighboring street of Via San Gregorio Armeno features a plethora of nativity workshops, selling "presepe" and other souvenirs. Neapolitan nativity scenes are an integral part of Naples' culture, attracting thousands to San Gregorio Armeno during Christmas.
