Description of the party

Vega del Codorno residents go with their offerings of goats, sheep and hens to a natural cave where the Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph and the Child wait for them. Watching this representation, one comes to feel like a spectator of that Bethlehem in year zero that witnessed Christ birth. Shepherds, the Three Wise Men, Herod, and all the figures that make up a traditional nativity scene are also present, in which up to 60 residents take part.

The festivity goes on at night with an open-air dance.

Festivity of Regional Tourist Interest

DATE OF CELEBRATION:

Movable date. Last Saturday before Christmas Eve.

SUGGESTIONS:

The cave which is the setting for the representation is a splendid example of the beauty that Serranía de Cuenca Natural Park contains at any corner.
