Crèche in the Church in Saint-Saturnin-les-Avignon

OpenFrom 10 December 2017 to 04 February 2018
10 December to 4 February, 9am to 12 on Saturday, 2:30 to 5:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays in December and January, every day between 23 Dec and 7 January. One of the biggest and loveliest crèches in the region with 200 figurines, and 40 animated figures.
This large crèche (52m²) is the fruit of the imagination and drive of parishioner J-F. Perdiguier. The crèche embellishes the parish and requires over 200 hours of work to prepare.

The crèche is a beautiful recreation, down to the slightest details, of a Provençal village. Each year new decors and new settings are imagined. The space changes, new ideas are put into action. The crèche has 200 different santons, including 90 characters and a hundred animals. Nearly 40 santons are animated.

- 10 December at 11:30: inauguration.

- 4 Feb at 4pm: Crèche Blanche and Adieu ceremony.
