THE Adra municipal nativity scene has been unveiled and blessed.
Mayor Manuel Cortes’ official inauguration of this year’s nativity at the cultural centre was followed by a blessing by curate Ruben Checa.
The ceremony also included the angelic voices of members of the Pedro Mena children’s choir, who performed Christmas songs.
The nativity, which features more than 200 figures, reflects some of the most important traditions in Adra’s history, notably farming and food production. It also features some of the biblical scenes represented in previous nativities, such as the exodus from Egypt and St Joseph’s dream.
The nativity can be visited during the cultural centre opening hours throughout Christmas.
