El portal del Belen - The nativity scene in the Cathedral of Barcelona

The Cathedral of Barcelona also has a nativity scene open for the public to see in December and I would like to show you, cause it’s so pretty! It’s the Portal de Belen to visit if you want to get a piece of Spanish Christmas spirit.
This one is not inside the actual Cathedral, but in the gardens behind, and the surroundings are just beautiful and somehow ceremonious.

It's a nativity scene with live geese, hens and fish!

Candles everywhere, and this beautiful oooold cathedral sets the moods quite nicely!


  1. Oi, så fint og høytidelig. Det kunne jeg godt tenkt meg å sett! God jul!

  2. Breathtaking! Again, NOTHING like this in the states lol!
