It is very good to be back on the Amalfi Coast after a wonderful trip visiting my family and friends in America over the holidays. The Christmas decorations are still up in the cities along the coast, and I have been enjoying seeing many them for the first time. While walking in Amalfi last weekend, I found a lovely nativity scene in a small fountain in the Piazza dello Spirito Santo. This fountain, made in the 18th century of volcanic stone, has two faces carved in marble where the water comes out. Below each of these spouts, there was an elaborate nativity scene that continued under the water in the fountain, as you can see below.
I love how nativity scenes are often tucked into every nook and cranny here along the Amalfi Coast. This is certainly one of the most charming I have discovered so far! Here is a short video I made of the fountain:
