The beating heart of the city, the historic center is rich in Neapolitan culture and traditions.

The famous Via San Gregorio Armeno, also known as the “Street of Nativity Scenes”, is famous for its artisans specialized in creating handcrafted nativity scenes, an art that has centuries-old roots. Here you can immerse yourself in an enchanted world made up of minutely detailed figurines depicting daily life, the holy family and even current affairs figures.

A walk along Spaccanapoli is a journey into the past, among the narrow streets and ancient facades. This long, straight street runs through the heart of the historic center, dividing the neighborhood in two. Along the way, you’ll find authentic markets, traditional shops, quaint cafes and historic churches.

One of the most extraordinary treasures of the historic center is the Church of San Severo, famous for hosting one of the most surprising sculptures in the world: the “Veiled Christ”. This work of art, created by Giuseppe Sanmartino, is a masterpiece of baroque sculpture, where the sculpted veil seems to magically float over the figure of Christ.
