The traditional nativity scene in Barcelona

Type: 
Exhibitions

The Barcelona Nativity Scene Association rebuilds the city's traditional nativity scene in the courtyard of the Frederic Marès Museum. It is a monumental work that was conceived during the month of April, that is, in full confinement. The montage recalls the landscape of a Mediterranean coastal town with the idea of bringing the two shores of the Mediterranean closer together. In this way, Tossa de Mar, the town represented, and Palestine are linked by water. A journey from an Iberian and Roman town to the place where Jesus was born. There are few maritime nativity scenes, and that makes this work unique.

The visit is free, but it is necessary to reserve.
