Nativity scenes

Art, tradition and devotion to rediscover the essence of Christmas!

Small, large, traditional, mechanical, symbolic: over the Christmas period Rapallo boasts more than thirty different nativity scenes. You will find them in parish churches, chapels, shrines and oratories, but also in unexpected places such as squares, beaches and ruins. Very scenic are the mechanised cribs of the Brotherhoods of the Whites and Blacks, which can be visited in their respective oratories.

Curiosity: The ancient wooden figurines of the nativity scene in the church of San Michele di Pagana wear clothes made of precious fabrics!
