The Cabildo’s traditional nativity scene can be visited from now until 6 January at the Town Hall in Santa Cruz. The nativity scene can be visited from 09:00 to 15:00 and 16:00 to 21:30, with the exception of 24 and 31 (09:00 to 15:00) and 25 December and 1 and 6 January (16:00 to 21:30).

Visitors will find an austerely decorated, ramshackle stable with a balcony at the front of the scene and a second, domed room that is both humble and charming. This is the rickety manger sheltering the tenderness of the birth of the baby Jesus. This traditional scene is characterised by earthy, russet and reddish colours meant to portray the arid lands of the East, though the endearing greens also stand out. This allows it to embody the charm of a town down to its small lanes.
