It's called "Belén" or even "Nacimiento" this special Christmas cribs on La Palma. Rotary- and always the three kings are point - however Caspar walk, Melchior and Balthasar in lifelike replicas of island landscapes in miniature format always hand in hand. And so goes the Belén 2016 in Los Llanos on a journey through time in the 1920s to Retamar, Montaña de Tenisca, Triana, La Laguna and Todoque.

Clubs and even island allround artist Luis Morera made already the Belén von Los Llanos. Eight years Marcelino Rodríguez and Francisco Pedrianes responsible for the perfect models. Both are signed to the city as a gardener, but from September of each year they are released, to put all their energy into the Christmas crib: "We work on average ten hours per day on the development", explain Fran and Marcelino. "Shortly before the opening of even a little more."

Old photos of the districts in Los Llanos: Templates for nativity scenes.

Old photos of the districts in Los Llanos: From these templates, the cribs baby details, and then model, assemble and paint the building and its surroundings in the small format in months Feinstarbeit . Surely not for the impatient people ...

Fran studied painting, and Marcelino has been his childhood building models and Nacimientos: "We are a perfect symbiosis", laugh at the Belenistas. "One is responsible for the form and the other for the colour". And both must investigate: Before starting the actual work, Fran and Marcelino looking for old plans and photos of the buildings, are no longer. Then they make up in the workshop of the city of Los Llanos exact miniatures of the houses and fine detail of the environment: Each banana tree, every palm tree and every flower are homemade.

"To build the Belén handicraft and art is at once", forward Fran and Marcelino, that them also for Christmas 2016 again, a unique Nativity scene is managed. More insights our photos - the panorama spot is of course much more impressive and up to the 6. January 2017 free to watch.
