The Belén of Boltaña
|The Christmas display in the church of Boltaña
is a wonderful display
of everyday-life in the region. We see a blacksmith, a baker busy with
fresh bread, a fisherman waiting for his first trout. The vegetable garden
is protected with Boj against the icy winds coming from
the Monte Perdido in the background.
Wait, ... did you notice?
|When we visited the church back in December 2003 the traditional Christmas display was improved with effects to suggest the passing of day and night and with some puppets making movements, but no mill made it to the tableau anymore. Pitty.|
