This big mechanical crib covers a surface of about 80 square metres and it's composed of more than 40 groups of statues. Great care was taken of the reconstruction of everyday life and the particular setting with statues moving in the alternating of night and day and of different weathers. The crib can be visited from December the 23th 2018 to January 20th 2019.

It is 30 years that the Association "Crib friends" spends several months designing and making the mechanisms, statues and setting of this mechanical crib, one of the most original and beautiful cribs of the region.

It covers a surface of about 80 square metres and is composed of more than 40 groups of figures, each of them is mechanical and has a sound.
Several scenes are proposed: the time leading up to Christmas, the Annunciation, Joseph's dream, looking for an accomodation in Bethlem, the Nativity, the presentation of Jesus at the temple and Kings' adoration.
