Nativity Scene Route in Gran Canaria

In Gran Canaria there is a large part of belenes (nativity scenes) with its own craftsman label.  They are made by specialists who put their soul in the design of this art.

Christmas is upon us once more and its celebrations give us another chance to get around the whole island, this time to take in all the Nativity scenes, with their highly graphic displays featuring each of the municipalities’ individual traits. Each town adds its own special blend of historical and deep-rooted traditions to the standard Nativity displays. When visiting you tie in with real-life customs of the people of Gran Canaria, as they spend their time at family’s and friends´ homes.
