Canillo Nativity Scene


From 05-12-2020 to 31-01-2021

This Christmas take a stroll around Canillo to explore the life-sized nativity scenes you’ll find dotted around the village.

Every year when these important dates arrive, the birth of Jesus is staged in Canillo’s impressive life-sized nativity installation.

The life-sized nativity currently features more than 200 figures spread over 30 different scenes. From the nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus to the arrival of their majesties, the Three Kings of Orient, shepherds with their flocks and farmers. The installation also features a wealth of animals such as horses, poultry and lambs, in their corrals and enclosures, oxen and cows, as well as figures depicting traditional trades. Like any nativity worth its salt, the scene also includes a discreetly camouflaged caganer figurine depicted in the act of defecation.

Visit Canillo and take a pleasant stroll along its streets to explore Andorra’s biggest nativity scene.
