Unusual nativity scenes
Yearly Tenerife events around Christmas and above all in the first two weeks of January include Belenes. Those are very unusual nativity scenes.
Admire them on their largest scale of all Canary Islands at the Casa Ventoso nativity scenes on Plaza Consejil by C/Iriarte of Puerto de la Cruz. They portray what the biblical life at the birth of Jesus Christ was like by reproducing entire villages. The show at Casa Ventoso isn't only the biggest but, also the most elaborate and most intriguing of the archipelago and quite likely of all of Macaronesia. The exhibition opens at 10 a.m. and closes during Siesta from 1.p.m. to 4p.m. in the afternoons.
