Belenes (Nativity Scenes)

All over the city you’ll find lights and Christmas decorations, but the most festive areas of the city are the main squares like Plaza Ayuntamiento and Plaza de la Reina. The life-size nativity scene in Plaza de la Reina is especially famous since it’s built by Fallas artists! ‘Belenes’,  or nativity scenes are a very special and significant Valencian Christmas tradition.

You can find many of them displayed in the city center, full of beautiful handcrafted figurines of different sizes, colors and styles. The main nativity scenes will be located in Plaza de la Reina, Mercado Colon as well as indoor locations like Salón de Cristal in the City Hall of Valencia, in the National Ceramics Museum and the Crafts Centre (el Centro de Artesanía), but you may discover many others while wandering the beautiful streets of Valencia.
