Living Nativity of Corbera de Llobregat
Who has not heard of Corbera's Living Crib? The population is a reference during the Christmas holidays for its living representation of the birth of Jesus, in Bethlehem, and that has become intangible heritage being one of the most important and visited in all of Catalonia. This famous manger is represented since 1962 and is one of the oldest in the country.

The Annunciation, the shepherds with the flock, the Catalan farmhouse, women washing, the hayloft, the cave, the apparition of the Angel, the Kings of the East, the flight to Egypt, the town of Nazareth with the market and the artisans, the blacksmith working, the children making the tió shit...
