This blog is devoted to my great interest, the Spanish Nativity scene, called a belén (Bethlehem) in Spanish. I discovered this traditional art form in the course of my frequent winter trips to Spain (during the low-fare season!).

After I did the Camino de Santiago in 2004, I realized that perhaps one thing I was being called to do was to spread my knowledge and love of this great Spanish religious and artistic tradition. This blog, like my website, is an attempt to let the world outside of Spain see and experience the belén, and, I hope, to encourage communication between belenistas in the US, Spain and other parts of the world.
