The Sand Nativity of Bellaria Igea Marina is a masterpiece of fine, compact sand from the Adriatic Sea, and every year the public is enthusiastic about its depiction of the Nativity with life-size sand statues.

Each year the Nativity scene is inspired by different places and characters. 

Scenes of everyday life, shepherds and poor peasants are depicted against a backdrop of historical architectural buildings, streets, taverns, palaces and places of worship.  Tons of sand come to life thanks to the talent and imagination of international sculptors. 

Opening hours: every day from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
