Bethlehem of the Madrid City Council at Christmas 2011 - 2012

(UPGRADE In this Christmas 2012 in Madrid,at the City Hall headquarters, in the Cibeles Palace, you can see an exceptional 18th century Neapolitan Bethlehem, Meanwhile he traditional nativity scene made by the Association of Belenistas of Madrid, with figures of José Luis Mayo, you can see it at the Matadero site, in Arganzuela)

One of the most visited nativity scenes in Madrid is the Bethlehem City Hall , which becomes one of the great attractions of the Christmas in Madrid with children.

As it happened last year, in the Christmas 2011 - 2012 this nativity scene has the Cibeles Palace, as the new headquarters of the municipal council.

Although in the past Christmas this nativity scene was located in the external space of the Crystal Gallery of the Cibeles Palace, in the middle Madrid, this time you can see it on the main floor of the building.

For visit the Bethlehem of the Madrid City Council, surely you must make some queue next to the main entrance of the Cibeles Palace, where a specific space has been enabled for us to access those who want to visit the nativity scene.

At that point they will give you a plasticized card, and after going through the control of the security scanner (only if you carry bags), you can now go to another queue that forms next to the access point to the area enabled for the nativity scene.

I can tell you that in the visit that I made in the middle of the morning of one of the non-holiday days of December, it took me a little less than half an hour to start the visit of the nativity scene, after waiting for both queues and going through the aforementioned control.

Compared to previous years in which the exhibition of the nativity scene was distributed in several spaces, which you could visit on your own, this time you will find grouped in a rectangular area, which in practice you have to circle in line.

As in previous editions, the Bethlehem of the Madrid City Council It is composed of 133 figures and constructions made by the artist José Luis Mayo, and 70 figures from the personal collection of Enrique Haro, made by different artists.

The scenery presents this year snowy landscapes, in which the different scenes are arranged. In addition, the lighting continuously changes from bright and warm, to dark tones, emulating the day after sunset, and at night.
