A very special nativity scene

The small village of Odeleite in Castro Marim hosted an authentic nativity scene brought to life by over 50 performers, craftspeople and local producers between December 6 and 9.

The performances by the Satori group were the big attraction of the event, says Castro Marim council, which featured numerous recreations of the birth of Jesus Christ.

There was also food and drink as well as a small market selling traditional local produce such as honey and dried fruits.

The event is held every Christmas season by the Odeleite social association (ASFO) with the help of the Odeleite parish council and Castro Marim council.
