Nativity scene in the church of Joucas JOUCAS

A beautiful traditional nativity scene with large 'santons habillés' (dressed nativity scene figurines), made by Simone Jouglas, a santon-maker from Marseilles. Awarded 'Meilleur ouvrier en France' in 1961, she is considered to be one of the country's best santon-makers.

The Church of Saint Jean Bapstiste (18th century) contains superb imitation-marble pilasters and arcades, decorative angels, murals and statues of saints, twelve tableaux (of which two were painted by Delpech, a Provençal artist) and a 18th-century gilded wood altar.
