» Christmas at Manarola

At Christmas time on "The Crosses Hill", after sunset, you can admire a huge Crib, full of figures as tall as human beings, lightened up with about 15000 lamps. It's the biggest Crib in the world.


» Easter at Manarola

On the "The Crosses Hill", at Easter, you can see another performance: the nights are enlived by figurations representing the most important moments of Christ's Passion and Resurrection.


» Christmas at Vernazza

Into a cave of Vernazza's bay, they fit out a lighted Crib, where a group of scuba divers goes in prayer, like modern shepards.
