On the road to Bethlehem

The village of Varena turns into a little Bethlehem with its large and suggestive illuminated crib.

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.
