Follow the nativity scene route in La Orotava
The route of nativity scenes in La Orotava has been consolidated over time and continues to be a major attraction in the north in the programming of activities to celebrate Christmas.
In this eleventh edition, there is a record of participants with 35 nativity scenes distributed throughout the municipality. This interesting and attractive route adds to the great cultural, commercial, gastronomic and leisure offer offered by the Villa at this time.
The Belenes Route, organised by the La Orotava Nativity Scene Association in collaboration with Orotava council, was presented at the Sacred Museum of the Church of La Concepción and was attended by Mayor Francisco Linares; the parish priest Óscar Guerra; the president of the Taoro Nativity scene, Esteban Morales; the coordinator of the museum itself, Adolfo Padrón, and the editors Delia Escobar and Felipe David Benítez.
During the event, presented by Vilehaldo Arzola, it was agreed to value this project that contributes to keep this important and artistic tradition alive, as well as to bring it closer to the general public so that they may ad-mire and enjoy it.
The nativity sce-nes of this year show all styles: Canary, Hebrew, modern … Between Decem-ber 22 and January 5, all the routes will be up and running. Anyone who wishes can go and observe and enjoy these traditional recre-ations of the Nativity for free, which also have access for people with phy-sical disabilities.
To know the exact dates, the places and the schedules, a brochure has been published in several lan-guages that also contains a map with the different points of location, most of them in the town of La Orotava, although there are some that are in other areas such as La Florida, Villa de Arriba, Cañeño, Las Candias or La Perdoma. The brochure can also be downloaded from the municipal website.
