From now until 6th January, you can enjoy the Belenes (nativity scenes) that are on display in many of Lanzarote’s town and villages.

The question is: how to plan your trip? Some scenes are best enjoyed in daylight, and some are even closed in the evening. However, a trip after dark will allow you to enjoy the illuminations that are all over the island, too.

Your route will depend on where you start from, but we’d advise you not to miss Haría, Punta Mujeres, San Bartolomé, Tinajo, Yaiza, Arrecife and Tias.

Daytime: Punta Mujeres, Teguise Casa de Cultura

Daytime or night time: Haría, Tias, Yaiza, Teguise, Arrecife

Nighttime: Tinajo (try and approach on the LZ 20 from Tiagua – the most spectacular way to discover the town’s light display); San Bartolomé. We’ll try and report on the winner of last year’s Belén competition, at the Sociocultural centre in Tiagua, over the next few days.
