On the road to Bethlehem
The village of Varena turns into a little Bethlehem with its large and suggestive illuminated crib.
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
The crib is a one-kilometer-long course presenting ninety one-meter-tall characters and about one hundred animals. Baby Jesus' hut is surrounded by a little crib with an inn, a farm, the baker's and some artisans's shops.
"Bethlehem Road” evokes ancient professions like the sheeps shearing, the spinning of wool, the collecting of wood, the threshing.
This huge crib will be installed on the meadow covered by snow along via Alpini and it is 2500 square meters large. When the sun goes down, 200 spotlights will illuminate the Nativity giving it an enchanted atmosphere.
You can visit the crib everyday, from mid December to mid January.
