This is an effort of the local people and they have developed an incredible diorama that goes on and on. It is pretty sophisticated, with day and night effects, and long, long nativity scenes. Please be sure to contribute to allow them to continue improving...More

Obviously a labor of love, free entrance though they take donations. Small room where some folks have made a detailed little town of Bethlehem, along with music and lighting. Takes maybe 5 minutes to see, complete with running water and details.

Miniature biblical dioramas with amazing detail. Take the time to appreciate the detail. The lights dim to capture the sunrise and sunset. We have seen dioramas before in Italy, and these are among the best. Incredible.

The Museo del Belen is the story of the nativity. Using mirrors for depth and water and smoke for effect this is definitely worth a visit if you are in Arcos de la Frontera. Check opening days as when we visited it was only open...More

Meticulous in detail in the story of Bethlehem and the Nativity. The figures are hand crafted from clay. Free entry.
