There are a lot of Christmas Nativity, and this dates interested people can enjoy all of them on the greater part of the national geography. Asociations like “La Asociación Amigos del Belén” Spreads this hobby with their art work. But another entities also do it. Here are some examples.

  • IberCaja: It’s one of the biggest and we can see it on the ground floor of the central offices (Pza. Paraíso nº2). One of its particularities most significant, in addition to its enormous size, is that it´s a traditional model aragonese. So  much that the Portal is a replica of San Juan de la Peña Romanesque cloister!
  • CAI: As well at the CAI’s central offices (Pº Independencia, 10). Original Christmas Nativity which agregate aragonese and biblic traditions, and in which there’s an atelier room in which are explained the assembly techniques.
  • Hogar de San José: Is located on Avenue San José, 22. It’s changing, because it´s figures all have movement and here we can see two different views (depending on the time of day/night).

  • Plaza del Pilar:  Undoubtedly the most spectacular of Zaragoza. For its location on the Pilar Square, because of its enormous size (2.400 m²), because it may be visited from the inside to admire the life-size figures that leisure traditional aragonese trades (ashlar stone romans which are true archaeological elements found in Zaragoza!), in addition to its spectacular vegetation. It’s also a good idea the Christmas visit that scour the Christmas Nativity and the Basilic as well, and which you can do tastings in some huts of the street market.
