La Laguna nativity scene route 2021

La Laguna opens the doors to more than twenty nativity scenes distributed throughout different parts of the municipality

The route of the nativity scenes in La Laguna includes a total of 25 nativities, spread over different parts of the municipality, from La Cuesta and Taco to Valle de Guerra and Punta del Hidalgo, has opened their doors so that they can be visited by all those who love this Christmas art. A tradition that, thanks to the collaboration of the Department of Culture and the Nativity Scene Association of La Laguna, has been recovered after the 2020 parenthesis caused by the pandemic.

The route, which can be consulted in paper format and through social networks, is made up of the 22 works that are participating in the contest, with more than 20 years of history in Aguere and which also returns this holiday season, and of three other elaborations that, although they are not competing in this contest, wanted to join the itinerary.

The mayor of La Laguna, Luis Yeray Gutiérrez, encouraged citizens to enjoy this exhibition “deeply rooted in the La Laguna town that, thanks to the dedication and dedication of hundreds of people, has been passed from generation to generation until it has become one of the most outstanding and long-awaited Christmas events”.

The 25 works are spread over the areas of Taco, La Cuesta, Geneto, Las Chumberas, Tejina, Bajamar, Valle de Guerra, Guamasa, El Ortigal and the city centre and are in different styles, such as outdoors, diorama and biblical. The president of the Nativity Scene Association, Francisco Roldán, reported that the doors will remain open until January 5.
