Original and unusual

According to legend, returning from Rome to join his diocese of Saint-Privat, the bishop of Mende stopped along the Via Aurelia in front of a group of farmhouses. Noticing his fatigue, a girl took him to her father where he was welcomed. He recovered and, a night at the vigil he told them of the birth of Christ, describing the cave of Bethlehem and the events that followed, thus creating one of the most important traditions of the region, the Provençal crèche (nativity scene).
