The church of San José de Puerto de Mazarrón hosts an exhibition on nativity scenes from the world of the collection ‘Antonio Jorquera’ until January 17
In the sample you can see “more than 250 pieces of nativity scenes from the five continents, made of various materials such as ebony and ceramics,” explained Pilar Jorquera, who thanked the City Council for its support in setting up the exhibition. A thank you that the parish priest of San José also conveyed to the municipal corporation, many of who were in attendance at the inauguration
The Parish Priest explained to the children present, who before the blessing of both nativity scenes sang Christmas carols to welcome Christmas, that at birth you could see the colours of this celebration such as the red of love, the green of the hope, the white of purity and enlightenment and the gold of prosperity. In addition, a cherry tree and an almond tree, representing the land of Murcia, complete this set with a pair of lambs, symbolizing Jesus, Lamb of God
The Mayor of Mazarrón, Gaspar Miras, has invited the neighbours to “get to know the beautiful nativity scene that the Jorquera family possesses, who must once again be thanked for their predisposition so that the neighbours can enjoy these pieces.”
The visiting hours of the nativity scene are from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. On Sundays it can be visited from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and in the afternoon also from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
