540th anniversary for Las Palmas
When the Gran Canaria island council has its nativity scene created, it always reflects a special place on the island. On the occasion of the 540th anniversary of Las Palmas, this year the old town of La Vegueta, with its striking Plaza de Santa Ana, the Cathedral of Santa Ana, the Chapel of San Antonio Abad and the façade of the Columbus House were reproduced in miniature. The figures are also intended to recreate typical everyday life at the end of the 18th century, when the contrast between the clothing of the upper middle classes and that of the working classes is clear. The nativity scene was inaugurated by Antonio Morales, the island president.
