Continuamos con nuestras visitas a belenes pero ya que los que visitaremos hoy están muy cerca de Gijón daremos un largo rodeo
Today we will continue with our Nativity Scenes tour but because the ones we are going to visit today are very closely to Gijón were we live, we will do a long detour
We stopped at San Cucao Castle also called Valdés' House. It has Medievals origins but what you can see nowadays is from the XIX Century. It is a private house so we only peeped from the distance
Now we are in Oviedo the capital of the province. We paid a visit to an interesting civil monument The Foncalada Fountain a beautiful exponent of the Prerromanic Art (IX Century)
We saw the Gothic Cathedral (XII Century) as well
There is buried King Ramiro I
But our visit today is aimed to admire the Nativity Scene in the Trascorrales Square. Enrique and Tere told us about it.
It is in my opinión the one with the more detailed figures and it is showed in a beautiful building, an old fish market
The size and beauty of the figures are remarkable
We have more time before return home so we went to Pola de Siero to admire another very interesting Nativity Scene
This is a permanent one, very big and elaborate
You can spend hours looking to all the details
The priest who did it intended to recreate the Holy Land and the places he visited during his life
It has a very peculiar feature, it uses mirrors very wisely doing so they got the impression of profundity
It was a great day with the bikes and friends.
