Over 100 nativity scenes on display in Altura

An impressive display of over 100 nativity scenes from several continents is opening on Saturday, December 8 at Altura’s parish council.

The nativity scenes belong to a local resident’s “private collection”, the parish council said.

Many of them come from countries as far as Israel and Cape Verde, while one of them is a 50-year-old Portuguese handmade “antique”.

The exhibition will remain on display until January 6 and can be visited from 9am to 4pm.
