This is an effort of the local people and they have developed an incredible diorama that goes on and on. It is pretty sophisticated, with day and night effects, and long, long nativity scenes. Please be sure to contribute to allow them to continue improving it.

This is really a work of love. It has the different Nativity scenes starting with the Anunciation, looking for a place in Bethelem, Jesus birth artistically well made, that even for a non Christian they would be amazed, 😳. Was told it used to be a s all cave which has been transformed.

Miniature biblical dioramas with amazing detail. Take the time to appreciate the detail. The lights dim to capture the sunrise and sunset. We have seen dioramas before in Italy, and these are among the best. Incredible.

tucked away on a narrow street this is one of the best displays of the nativity that you can see anywhere. small but was made by individuales without payment. the opening hours are a little strange and is disappointing when you arrive at the door and it is closed.
well worth a visit while in Arcos

What looks to be a hole in the wall in the middle of the neighborhood reveals itself to be a true treasure in this village. Once inside the door, you are treated to an incredible series of dioramas depicting key scenes in Jesus' life. The details are amazing and are clearly a labor of love by the group of people behind this work. This is not just a "random craft project"--the sophistication, level of detail, and enhancements put into this effort are remarkable and would make any Hollywood special effects team proud. This is definitely worth the stop not only to see this amazing work but also to talk to the individuals involved in this effort. There is not charge to get in the door however donations are welcome.

Its a model making treat to see the Nativity story from the Bible being constructed with models, with sound, lighting and even water features. The whole diorama as a day and night lighting which switches gradually from day light to dusk, night and dawn and back to day.It tells of the time when the virgin Mary was visited by the angel of God with the message that Mary will be with child and she shal call the child Jesus (Emmanuel). I think this would be in the Jewish quarter of Arcos. Entrance is free but a donation of 2 Euro is appreciated. We also signed off in the visitor log to record and log our visit/

Obviously a labor of love, free entrance though they take donations. Small room where some folks have made a detailed little town of Bethlehem, along with music and lighting. Takes maybe 5 minutes to see, complete with running water and details.

This almost life like story of the birth of Christ is a must. Beautifully made figures in many scenes from the angel visiting Mary to the birth of the baby in the stable. A free exhibition in a street just off the main square where the Paradore is found. A large straw star outside the building Shows you the way. Open during the day. Photos allowed. We went back twice.
