Photographer's Note

This is my third and last photo of this event this year, just to wish you all a Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!


Once more I'm posting a photo of the Nativity in Monsaraz, an event that attracts many visitors every year. It has around 40 real size characters, created by the sculptor Teresa Martins, that are placed all through the village. You can find them in the most amazing places. There are beggers sitting on the stairs of the church, a woman taking water from the well, women and children in the streets... This one was taken in the main square. The church is in the background and what we see behind the sculptures is the Christmas log - they burn it there every year.
