One of the biggest attractions of the Christmas of Castro Marim, the Crib of Salt will be available to see already from the 1st of December, at “Casa do Sal”. The inauguration is scheduled for 4pn, but from 3pm you can watch the Christmas parade, which represents the arrival of the holiday season to the village.


The initiative is from the parish council of Castro Marim, which organizes, from ten years, the House of Christmas, consisting of a giant nativity scene. Two years ago, the salt was introduced as a raw material and the amount of visitors has surpassed the expectations. Welcomed for the second time in the House of Salt, the Crib of Salt is reinforcing the mission of the infrastructure, which is to promote the great economic engine of Castro Marim, the salt.


The salt Nativity scene is now being built. It will be used more than 7 tons of the "best salt in the world", for a space with about 100m2, where they will be sculptionally distributed the more than 3800 pieces that compose it.


In addition to the larger dimension in relation to the previous year, the initiative of the Crib of Salt presents this year a new and multifaceted dynamic, proposing to perform, every Saturday, a "time of the tale" for children and, on Sundays, musical performances with local groups . The weekend will also feature the promotion and sale, in the space bar of House of Salt, an endogenous product, such as honey or dried fruits, so appreciated at this time of year.


The Crib of Salt can be visited every day, between 10am-1pm and 2pm-6pm, except for the 25th of December and 1st of January, which will work between 2pm and 6pm.


This is an initiative of the parish council of Castro Marim and has the support of the City Council of Castro Marim and municipal company Novbaesuris.
