Nativity scenes are a big part of Advent and Christmas preparations in Spain. There are several here in Las Palmas, but the most impressive one is definitely the one made of sand on Las Canteras beach. This year is the seventh edition. I was so lucky to see it last year too, and I am looking forward to seeing it this year.
The other day I snapped some photos of the making of it. I love seeing artists working, and this was no exception. It is so impressive to see them create these huge sand sculptures!
Anyway, here's what you can do with 500 tons of sand on a 1500 square meter space!
I can't help thinking back to my golden days as a sand castle maker... Let's just say much has happened in the Sand Castle business since then, hah!
