The Christmas Lights in Grottaglie [video]


Grottaglie, the city of Traditional Apulian Ceramics, is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited. During the holiday season, it comes alive with decorations and lights. This post will take you on a journey to show you how beautiful Grottaglie looks when it's lit up for Christmas. Let's get started! 

The Crib inside the Chapel of SS Peter and Paul

Beginning of the tour of Grottaglie

The tour starts from the Chapel of Saints Peter and Paul, where visitors can admire the lights of the small crib set up inside. From there, walk along Via Forleo until you reach Piazza Regina Margherita and its beautiful Christmas tree covered in lights. The square also houses the Chiesa Matrice, Collegiata Maria SS. Announced.

From here, we will walk along Via Niccolò Maria Ricchiuti towards the Church of Santa Lucia, which has been beautifully decorated with multicolored lights. Continuing our tour through the streets of the historic center, we will see other festive decorations such as bright stars hanging from trees and girls hanging from buildings. The whole area looks magical in the evening!
