Crib of sand - City of Paulínia - São Paulo State

The biggest nativity scene made of sand in the world, with about 1100 m² and made up of seven canaries in sequence wich count the history of the born of Jesus, since the announcement until the escape to Egypt. There is two big guardian angels in the entrance and in the centre the canary of the born of Jesus. The  hundreds of tons of sand used to the fulfillment of this huge event was taken to the beaches of Santos, and Paulínia, in the inner of the state.
Visited for around 15.000 people daily. The event took place in the Christmas of 2001, remaining in exposition until the Christmas of 2004, or maybe longer.
