Cribs in the historical hamlet "Turchia" of Moena

Exhibition of the most beautiful Christmas cribs in the traditional Turchia quarterhood in Moena

Exposition of hand-made cribs in the "Turchia" quarterhood in Moena from the 20 December to the 7 January. At Christmas time, the local association "Grop de Turchia" mounts about 20 cribs in suggestive settings, in the most peculiar corners of Moena. The biggest one is set up in the hayloft "Tabià del Copeto" (1693) with full-size hand-made wood statues by local artists.

According to the legend, in 1663, after the defeat of the Turkish in Vienna, a soldier, seeking to return home, crossed San Pellegrino Pass, but fell exhausted near to the last house in the district of Moena. The infidel was rescued and given food to eat. It caused such a commotion that the district’s inhabitants were called Turks. In fact, in Strada de Turchia there is the Turkish fountain, built in 1922, an Arabian head wearing a turban decorated with a crescent moon and a star.

 

The 29th of January from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., hot tea and mulled wine will be served by the hayloft "Tabià Copeto"
