About the event

With you we will go to visit the second most important city in the Valencian Community: Alicante.

A full day from Valencia celebrating this Constitution holiday where we can visit the largest Bethlehem holiday statue scene in the world and enjoy one of the most famous events in Alicante: La Palmera de Fuego.

This is an excursion that you cannot miss!

ALICANTE, the city was founded by the Greeks more than 2,500 years ago under the name of Acre Leuca (“Cerro Blanco”) “The white mountain”, then the Romans renamed it Lucentum (City of Light) and the Arabs called it Al Lukant.

Alicante has the largest scene of Bethlehem statues in the world, and it is the Christmas postcard that you will want to have on your Instagram.

The figures from the Birth of Alicante measure a combined total of 56.02 meters while those of Monterrey, which held the previous mark since 1991, reached 28.58 meters. With that size, the figures designed by the artist José Manuel García Pachi surpassed a record that had been maintained for almost three decades.

The 18.1 meters high of San José and the 10.5 meters of the Virgin Mary stand out as towers in the view of the popular Alicante promenade.

Following this thread, the Mayor of Alicante predicts that this Christmas in Alicante «this year this Bethlehem scene will be giant. Since it will serve to recover the illusion and happiness, with the good sense and prudence that has characterized us in these times of pandemic ».
