Albox recovers the municipal Monumental Nativity Scene ‘Enrique Miras’.

The municipality of Albox opens the Municipal Nativity Scene ‘Enrique Miras’. Recovering traditions is a commitment of the new government team, and the monumental Nativity Scene of Albox was once one of the most important in Andalusia. It is a must-see for many schools in the Almanzora region and another attraction to visit the town during the Christmas holidays.

In 2016 the municipal nativity scene disappeared and so this year the Town Hall, after finding the pieces in very poor condition due to poor conservation, asked for help from the volunteers of the Local Board of the Spanish Association Against Cancer. A dozen women, led by Filo, have worked over the last few weeks to restore piece by piece, until they managed to recover the nativity scene that was once created by the “Asociación Amigos de Los Reyes Magos” (Friends of the Three Wise Men Association).

“This Nativity Scene could not be forgotten, there were many years of work and dedication of this Association, and especially of Enrique Miras. I am convinced that wherever he is, he will be happy that we have recovered the monumental Nativity Scene and that it bears his name,” said the mayoress, María del Már Alfonso, after cutting the ribbon, accompanied by one of Miras’ daughters, Ana María, and several of his grandchildren and great-granddaughters. “For us it is a very nice gesture, I’m sure my father will be very happy. Thank you very much for recovering this tradition” said the daughter of Enrique Miras, visibly moved.

The new Nativity Scene has been installed in a place next to the Plaza San Francisco, in the Barrio de La Loma, where it has always been on display. “This is only the beginning, we will continue to recover pieces, we will buy what is needed and we will get our Nativity Scene back to the splendour it always had” added the mayoress.

The event, held this Monday afternoon, was blessed by the local parish priest and many neighbours who did not want to miss the inauguration of the municipal Nativity Scene. The opening of the Nativity Scene has always meant the arrival of Christmas. This is the starting signal for an extensive Christmas programme that will energise the life of the municipality over the next few days.

Magic Christmas in Albox is the name of this year’s special programme in the municipality. Gymkana for children, Gastronomic Market ‘Albox con mucho gusto’. Tribute to the Beatles, Scape room ‘Conoce tu pueblo’, Tardeo por Navidad with Zambomba flamenca, Dj’s, and numerous workshops and children’s activities complete the Christmas programme in Albox.
