Path of Cribs and Christmas Trees – Lucca Magical Christmas (final week)
December 11, 2022 - January 8, 2023Free
PATH OF CRIBS AND CHRISTMAS TREES
A tour of the cribs set up in churches and historic buildings is an opportunity to rediscover the pleasure of the Christmas atmosphere. In Lucca, you cannot miss the historic nativity scene in the baroque church of Santa Maria Corteorlandini Nera (via Santa Maria Corteorlandini 10A) from 11 December to 8 January. Large statues in plaster and straw, papier-mâché, bisque for a precious crib from the 1600s, and refined silk garments of the tradition of the Lucchese manufactures of the time.
Even Piazza San Michele this year welcomes a large nativity scene, under the loggia of the Palazzo Pretorio, while a tall Christmas tree stands in the square.
Festive atmosphere in the streets and squares of Lucca, but also of serenity and tranquility. It’s time to disconnect to devote yourself to your dearest affections and most loved things, to small serene thoughts to keep throughout the year, to hot chocolate in a place crowded with smiles. Lucca awaits you for a magical Christmas, with small and large events to make the end-of-year holidays unforgettable.
