Nativity Scene in the Cathedral

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

This year’s nativity scene is up and ready to be visited in the city cathedral. The artist, Daniel José Pons, has added 30 new figures and the display is even bigger than last year’s, which is shocking. Around 6000 animal pieces join over 300 humans in this gigantic display.

At 15 meters long, and with a depth of 8 meters, this nativity scene is a must for Christmas fanatics. But be prepared for a wait and a pushy, impatient crowd — the “belén” is extremely popular. I’ve noticed that the smallest and most pious looking Spanish elderly ladies are those most likely to cut in line. Stay alert.

It’s free to visit, and will be open until January 6th. Weekday hours are from 10:00 – 13:30 and 17:00 – 20:30. Weekends & holidays are from 11:00 to 13:30, and 18:00 to 20:30.
