Palma nativity route

Christmas comes to the city of Palma

When Christmas arrives in Palma it brings with it all sorts of figures and ornaments. It is time for families to take to the streets to browse and do some shopping. At the same time convents, churches and cultural centres exhibit their nativity scenes, some of them real treasures like the Palau March nativity scene, an eighteenth-century Neapolitan nativity scene composed of more than two thousand meticulously crafted pieces, or the  nativity scenes of the convents such as the Monastry of Purísima Concepción, Santa Magdalena and  Santa Clara. And continue the route to the Sa Nostra Social Centre to see its curious island-shaped traditional Mallorcan nativity scene. The Palma City Council nativity scene is set in one the most emblematic places in the city, the most nostalgic without a shadow of a doubt! And there are more; come and see them for yourself!
