Christmas sheepfold

23 December to 7 January (except 25 Dec. and 1 Jan.)

Various places in the village

The children will find, as every year, the Christmas sheepfold, set up in a cot, on the church square.

The shepherds keep sheep, ewes and lambs in a shelter under the rock.

Talk with them, listen to them tell about the shepherd’s job, the transhumance and the stories linked to pastoralism in Provence.

The flock parades through the village streets at 11.00 pm and grazing on the esplanade of the Château at 3.00 pm.
