Información del evento

As is already a tradition and an essential during Christmas, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria presents a unique Christmas postcard to celebrate the most special dates of the year, right on the beach and with the sun as the protagonist. The Belén de Arena returns once again to Las Canteras beach, to create an unforgettable image on one of the most renowned urban beaches in the country.

The 17th edition of Bethlehem will receive the public from December 2 to January 8, thanks to the work of nine international artists on the iconic beach of the capital. The sculptors, from the Canary Islands, the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Latvia, Ireland and Russia, have modeled an ephemeral work of art that occupies a total of 2,800 square meters in the La Puntilla area, with authentic works of art that reach three meters high.

As every year, the Belén de Arena −a symbol of Christmas in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria that receives the visit of more than 100,000 people in just four weeks− also chooses to represent social issues and their solidarity donations will go to soup kitchens from the capital. This edition, Bethlehem will be dedicated to youth and the future, with a special focus on peace. Christmas scenes will also coexist in Bethlehem with images closely related to the city, such as fishing, along with recreations of works by Canarian artists.

With the end of the year and Christmas getting closer, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is preparing to celebrate this time in a special way, uniting the festivities with the sun, the beach and the good weather that always characterize the capital.
