As you walk through Puerto de la Cruz, you will find a traditional Christmas at Casa Ventoso (the old school of the Augustinians). Until January 6, there is an exhibition of cribs made of different materials (clay, stone, rattan) but share an essence, the Christmas spirit. These small works of art are unique and beautifully handmade – each tells a story, a place, a time and a vision.
Each year the Association share tips on materials and design visions. Behind every Balén there is a family, a couple or a group of friends. Each crib has its history; like Manuel, an architect or Martin and his wife who have spent nine years working on an impressive representation of the birth of Jeses. If you look a thousand times you can always find new details.
The exhibition of nativity scenes will be open from Monday to Sunday from 10.00 to 13.00. and from 16.00 to 20.00 h.
Except: 24 December- 10.00 to 13.00, 25 December 16 to 20.00, December 31 from 10.00 to 13.00 and January 1, 16.00 to 20.00.
See you at Christmas!
