We had this on our list of things to see. We were eating lunch and looked up and saw the scene in the rocks. We were happy to have spotted it.

Rather like Positano, there is a structure built into the rockface at the side of the road before arrival into the town itself. In this case it is a mini version of Praiano. Not a must do, but keep any eye out for this feature.

Saw the "Presepe" and it is amazing, looks like they tried to make a sculpture of Praiano itself. Really impressing and with good ilumination so that you can see it at night. Compared to a traditional Christmas "pesebre" in Spain it is huge.
