The Light of the Nativity
 Cathedral of Valencia


An amazing beautiful spectacle  at Valencia Cathedral until January 6th, a huge nativity scene, entitled
'The Light of the Nativity'
 will be on display at the Cathedral of Valencia.  Incredibly this is the first time a nativity scene has been exhibited in the Cathedral for four centuries and it has been set up opposite the San Luis Obispo Chapel.
It is a very special nativity scene and is 12 metres long by 6 metres wide and consists of 400 pieces.

Up until the 17th century, the Cathedral of Valencia would have a real-life nativity scene every year at Christmas, but not since then have there been large-scale nativities on display here. The Cathedral's new nativity scene is classic in its style and contains 400 figures, 40 of which measure 35 cm, made out of clay and commissioned especially from the Jerez-born artist, José Joaquín Pérez.

The Nativity scene also contains smaller pieces of varying sizes and representations of the town of Nazareth or Jerusalem, which have been arranged so as to create a realistic perspective. The display will even include a flock of around a thousand sheep
