Christmas photos of La Orotava Tenerife
Christmas lighting Orotava street
Feel like traveling back in time by a narrow cobble stone street within La Orotava's old quarters... Christmas lighting
creates a mellow, warm mood, where only parked cars betray more stressful times of the XXI century. This street leads almost directly from Casa Lercaro to the town hall.
Christas gallery highlights La Orotava
Casa Lercaro one of the buildings that go back to founders days is a great photo shoot drawer with its festive gear outside, just like the town hall up the road.
There, several nativity scenes show how it may have been in and around the manger when Christ was born. All this is a fascinating treasure of forms, figures, colors, textures and much play of light under a star lit sky for best Christmas photos, indeed.
Life size figurines stand alone, in groups and with or without farm animals. A faint smell of dry hay is in the air. Shepherds are dressed in their Djellabas, while the three Reyes Magos who symbolize Spain's Christmas are clad like holy kings of Oriental nights. Their attire and the gifts next to them are not only made of precious silk and Damask.
Incense, spices, jewelry, basket ware and trinkets that shine like gold are spread out on makeshift tables under red and yellow baldachins. All patterns and colors come alive under the Led lights which diffuse their soft magic.
The time would stand still on this square of so many nativity sculptures. However, there are visitors that come and go without disturbing the peace. A few steps from the town hall, a new scene captures the mood with most original outside Christmas decorations of shop fronts. They are in La Carretera the main shopping street of the town. Led light decorations are hung high above this road to join its sides in festive celebration.
The frontal decoration of La Orotava Church Iglésia Nuestra Señora de Inmaculada Concepción honors the birth of Christ superbly. A few gold glittering led strings form the outside Christmas lights. They create the shape of the star of Bethlehem above the church entrance door.
Christmas Puerto de la Cruz
Nothing attracts big crowds more than a festive mood, as also happens in Puerto de la Cruz which was la Orotava harbor before.
Going out at night until way after midnight is part of Spanish traditions. The street Calle Quintana and the nearby yard Plaza del Charco have been a hub for old customs for centuries.
Stunning Christmas photos may also be taken by the big church square of Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Peña Francia. There rein deer sculptures of Led lights and masses of traditional red star flowers are part of the scene.
Illumination always contributed to Puerto's party mood. But nowadays, low cost lighting allows for more extended periods right into the carnival season, while it adds to town safety.

Christmas in San Christóbal de la Laguna
You must love the genuine old. Otherwise, this former capital will not appeal to you.
The photo shows scarce Christmas decoration. Yet, its romantic light lures you in to explore many secret nooks and crannies. There, nativity scenes may surprise you. Ancient trees on town squares are clad in led lights. Motives for more Christmas photos, indeed.
Outside Christmas decoration without lighting
An most beautiful outside Christmas decoration seen in day time outside above 3 meters off the ground. It was on the facade of an ancient house of the fishing village Punta Brava in Puerto de la Cruz. Not even a street light was nearby.
