.....and the real meaning of Christmas.
The Belen is an enormous nativity story set up in a square. It tells the story from the angel telling Mary about the baby, all the way through to the flight to Egypt.Each of the scenes is filled with miniature people and animals all set in villages, inns, stable and caves. It is free to walk around and set in a square decorated with lights. No santas or pop songs anywhere, just lovely carols recognisable by the tunes for us. A special reminder of the reason for next weekend. Feliz Navidad X
