There are static nativity scenes all over the island because every village create its own, with pride.
On the other side, different points of the island prepare their living nativity scenes, so that the ihnabitans attend the Christmas tradition. Among them, we should mention the Tinajo’s ones, that count with small animals of the area.
The list of nativity scenes that worth to visit is very very long. In addition to the Tinajo’s ones we can mention also the one of Haría, by the Thousands Palmtrees valley. A traditional nativity scene full of details in an incredible environment that you can’t miss!
Another special nativity scene is the Yaiza nativity scene. With more than 23 meters long, this nativity scene allows to reproduce a tour of some of the most emblematic points of the island.

Visiting every corner of Lanzarote at Christmas is a gift for the senses. It is a different way to discover the island and its traditions.
There are Christmas concerts, horse riding, children’s workshops, traditional workshops, parades, popular races, theatre… You can plan and enjoy the Christmas spirit.
Deliver the letter to the Magi and Santa Claus
In Lanzarote you will have the opportunity to see both the Magi and Santa Claus. According to Christian tradition, the Three Kings arrived at the portal on a camel. If you’re on the island the best place to give them the letter is by el Echadero de camellos of Timanfaya National Park. Enjoy your camel ride and take advantage to deliver your letter.
If you prefer to discover Santa Claus house, you can do it by the Shopping Center Biosfera Plaza.

Create your Sandman
Among the different things to do in Lanzarote at Christmas there is also the option of making a Sandman.
Since there is no snow the best alternative is sand, which is indispensable to create a Christmasman. Do not forget to put in your luggage the swimsuit and a Christmas hat to put it to your creation.
It’s no weird if you see snowmen on the beach instead of sand castles. It’s Christmas!
