The Great Living Nativity Scene at Santa Maria del Rovo is a very particular living nativity scene, counting two hundred figures, alive animals, ancient crafts to discover, local products to taste, entirely realized by the parishioners of the parish of S. Maria del Rovo in Cava de’ Tirreni.

The 9th edition of the event starts on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 and Saturday, December 29 and Sunday, December 30, 2018, on Wednesday, January 1, 2019, and Sunday 6, January 2019.

It’s an extraordinary “theatrical” project, where visitors get completely involved. The scenes, representing the ancient, simple life, take visitors/pilgrims back in time.
The path is very evocative, and it extends on a wide outdoor area, enlightened by hundreds of candles, with the possibility of taking a break to taste traditional local products.

In previous years, the Great Living Nativity Scene at Santa Maria del Rovo has welcomed over 30k visitors.

Opening times:
From 6 pm to 9:30 pm.
Free entrance and parking, also for buses.
Advanced bookings are strongly recommended for large groups: +39 089 340017 – +39 329 3034944.
