It is a happy tradition which has been renewed for years; the Maritime Museum is illuminated with lights and animated with artistic statues which tell the Nativity story in marine style. 

The characters (fishermen, carpenter, puppeteer, musicians, together with the Holy Family) have been fashioned in a most original manner: the exposed parts of the body have been sculpted from Swiss pine and the clothes are draped fabric stiffened with hot-brushed wax. 

Year after year the Nativity grows bigger and bigger, new statues and new characters are added.

-  Sunday December 4th, 2022 - 5 p.m. - Inauguration with switching on of the lights of the Nativity scene and the Christmas tree.
