Monumental Nativity Scene and the “Light of a New Nativity Scene” Exhibition; a Cultural Heritage Site

A 30 square metre, 360º Nativity Scene and parallel exhibitions organised by the Association of Nativity Scene Makers of Madrid.


This exhibition is a tribute to our roots, to the deep-rooted tradition of Nativity Scenes, which was declared a year ago to be Representative Manifestation of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of our country, and on the other hand, to the city of Madrid, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to the so-called Landscape of Light, the extraordinary urban area that was developed during the Enlightenment period, under the reign of Charles III, a great feat of urban planning. The Association of Nativity Scene Makers of Madrid has reproduced some of the most emblematic buildings of the period, transforming them into valuable representations of an era and incorporating a scenography with a biblical scene, thus creatively and brilliantly uniting our tangible and intangible cultural heritage. The degree of detail of the small-scale reproductions of the emblematic buildings - the result of painstaking research and design work - such as La Puerta de Alcalá, the Cibeles, the Department of Natural Sciences under construction (the Prado Museum), the Puerta de San Vicente and the building of the Real Casa de Correos (now the headquarters of the Community of Madrid), makes them quite unique.
