Laguna de Duero, Spain
The municipality of Laguna de Duero, in the the province of Valladolid, Castile and León, Spain, is known for the carefully reconstructed live Nativity scene set up by a local parish each Christmas. The use of actual fire to illuminate the scene adds to the realism, as the warm color of firelight illuminates the reenactment of Jesus' birth 2,000 years ago.
