1PFeliz Navidad.

If you are lucky enough to be on the island at the moment visit Puerto del Rosario where the largest nativity creation is situated in the Canary islands. In the Barranco Pilon by the bus station is 10,000m2 of land dedicated to the scene. It is an incredible display with functioning elements. It has background music and lighting. Certainly worth a visit to set the mood for Christmas celebrations.

Fuertenews will be coming to you from “sunny England” the next couple of weeks so please keep us updated with any new developments.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

Penny and Mike.
