15 Dec Find your Christmas in Ourense
Ourense does not lack anything to make this Christmas special and unforgettable: Christmas atmosphere on the street, Christmas carols, Nativity scenes … but also heritage, hot springs and a gastronomy that will impress you.
A Christmas classic in Ourense that we recommend you especially is to visit the beautiful Bethlehem of Baltar, in the Plaza de los Santos Cosme and Damián, which opens this Friday, December 15th. It is an authentic jewel of Galician art, which brings together more than a hundred clay figures, the work of the sculptor Arturo Baltar, in a composition that goes far beyond the classic representation of the birth of Jesus, including numerous scenes from the Ourense of once: the field work, the tavern, the children playing in the square. Until January 8th, it expands schedules and, in addition, the visit is free (from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm and from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm).
Ourense is in these dates full of lights, magic and color. And an agenda of activities for all tastes and ages that you can not miss. Among the recommendations: videomapping in Plaza Mayor, with impressive animations projected on the facade of the Town Hall. On December 22nd and 29th and on January 4th at 8pm and 9pm.
