Belén

The belén or nativity scene is an integral part of the Spanish Christmas Traditions. Most towns and villages have ornate displays that are erected in the town hall square, church square or similar for several weeks around Christmas, New Year and Three Kings.

La Mosca, Málaga

“The most incredible nativity you’d never find.”
