In keeping with tradition, hundreds of people from Elche attended the opening of this unique Nativity Scene in which the members of the Historical and Artistic Association of Pobladores recreate various biblical passages, from the arrival of the Holy Family to the Adoration of the Three Wise Men.
Around thirty people bring to life the Living Nativity Scene, which recreates, in addition to the nativity scene, Herod’s palace and a Jewish village with its dwellings, market and shops such as an inn, rotisserie, wine cellar, bakery and a new decoration shop, where you can buy items such as chestnuts, a wide variety of bread and sweets.
