SIX THOUSAND visitors turned up last Sunday (December 21) to take a look at the real-life nativity scene at Los Tablones in Motril.
The fifth edition of the event this year included new spaces to display traditional professions including the wheat windmill and the pottery workshop.
Mayor of the town, Luisa Garcia Chamorro, said that Christmas had officially started with this event, which continues to attract higher visitor numbers each year.
“This event has become one of the tourism highlights of the year, due to the realistic nature of the scenes and the introduction of new surprises in every edition,” said the mayor.
Head of the residents’ association of Los Tablones, Jose Manuel Maldonado, congratulated the 100 residents who had made the event possible, and emphasised the improvement that it experiences every year.
Garcia also thanked the participants for using the Cueva Hornedo and its surroundings as the setting for the play, and said the event could not have been possible without the support of the different council departments and the help of Local Police and Civil Protection.
