Photographer's Note

Just another photo of the Nativity scene in Monsaraz (my 18th post of this event). It's also a night shot - I prefer it at night, as most part of the visitors go away when the night falls. And as today it's Christmas Eve, I've chosen this one with the illuminated church in background.

This is an event that usually attracts many people to Monsaraz. 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... and the main characters right near the entrance of the castle.

Once again, have a wonderful Christmas!!!
