Launched in 2014 at the initiative of Fabienne Mourou, the Nativity Trail provides an opportunity during the Christmas period to convey the meaning, values and culture behind nativity scenes. This year, the trail will include 11 stages between the bottom of Rampe Major and Monaco-Ville.

In exploring the trail, which takes around an hour, the public will be able to discover some 50 nativity scenes, the majority of which are from private collections on five different continents, displayed in iconic locations on the Rocher. One of the scenes pays a special tribute to the end of the First World War: it is presented in an old soldier’s boot slipped into one of the arrow slits in the ramparts overlooking La Condamine.

To help visitors follow the trail, a leaflet is available from the Tourist and Convention Authority (2a Boulevard des Moulins), at the entry to the trail at the bottom of Rampe Major, and on the side of the chalets.

The Nativity Trail also continues throughout the town, with models on display at a number of locations (Société des Bains de Mer hotels, La Condamine Market, the Christmas Market, the Tourist and Convention Authority and Princess Grace Hospital).

A work which includes a miniature wooden nativity scene is being offered for sale (email chemindescreches@monaco.mc ).
