The market for Santons

The crèche is a tradition dear to the Provencal people, who revive the birth of the Child Jesus by recreating a traditional XIXth century village, with its trades and its truculent characters. Aubagne, famous for its santon makers, honors the santons at the end of the year in its Christmas market: you will find all the characters and decorations to make your own crib, where you will fall under the spell of a figurine to buy as a souvenir.
