Somewhere, on a tiny island in the middle of the Mediterranean, several local volunteers are in the final-touches stage for the TENTH EDITION of Bethlehem f’Għajnsielem, The event that has enchanted thousands of visitors over the past two years.

The nativity village is situated adjacent to the Għajnsielem main square, on the island of Gozo, just 5 minutes by walk from Mgarr Harbour. Appropriately called “Bethlehem f’Għajnsielem”, this life-size crib, constructed on 20,000 square metre (sqm) of fields on a stretch of land known as Ta’ Passi, comes to life during the month of December with about 150 actors taking visitors back in time to Judea of 2000 years ago. The atmosphere will simply be unique… horses turn mills, villagers go about their jobs, shepherds inhabit caves, animals roam in enclosed spaces and a poor unknown couple tend their newly-born in a grotto...

2018 is a milestone edition, the 10th since the first opening of the live crib at Ta’ Passi fields. It has been a long journey with every edition offering new attractions to strengthen the reproduction of the greatest story ever told – The Story of Nativity.

Entrance is free.
