A unique crib, the Penela Crib, the biggest animated crib in Portugal, will be on this Christmas in Penela city between day December 1st and January 6th.
It's not the first time Penela receives this Portugal Crib Village in its castle. This is a nativity scene "live", occupying an area of 700 square meters, where hundreds of wooden animated figures create the pictures, the traditional Portuguese nativity scene. These 3D figures are hand painted and show activities, traditions and stories alluding to this holiday season.
There are many other attractions, such as storytellers for children, a map of the sky, live recreation of ancient crafts, entertainment and street theater, less common animals shows, creative arts workshop and, as might be , a market and a Christmas train, among many others!
