Visit the giant crib, the largest nativity scene in Portugal in Vila Real de Santo António. Beautiful detail, animated figures, local touches and sound and light effects make this an amazing sight. Open from early Dec. 2021
The massive scene in VRSA is created each year by two council workers and a team of volunteers and has become a key Christmas time attraction.
Now in its 19th edition, the scene is larger than ever. Over 20 tons of sand, four tons of rock dust and 3,000 kilos of cork have been used to build the scene, which took 40 days and 2,500 hours to complete.The scale of the display and the attention to detail is amazing! There are 5,600 figures, 80 animated or motorized pieces, lakes and local landmarks in the display that covers 230m2.
The nativity scene is open to visitors every day until January 6th, between 10am and 1pm and 2.30pm and 7pm.
