Museo de Belenes (Nativity Scene Museum) in Alicante is the most famous nativity museum, which is based on the most important Catholic holiday - Christmas. The expositions of works by famous artists who have created nativity scenes for many centuries (XIII-XXI centuries) feature scenic Christmas stories such as “Twelfth Night” and the panorama “Baptism in Altai”. The museum, unique in its conception, emphasizes the significance of Christmas, not only in Catholic Spain, but throughout the world.

In 4 rooms of the museum in Alicante, stage expositions from different eras are placed, there are also paintings, costumes and numerous items that trace Christmas motifs. The exposition collection has been gathered from all over the world for several decades, and the first association of producers of Christmas scenes, where the main characters are the wise men, Virgin Mary, baby Jesus, sheep and nurseries, was created in Alicante in 1959. In 1997, the association became a public organization and took the initiative to create the Museum de Belen in Alicante, so another attraction of Alicante appeared, another museum.

The expositions of the New and Old Testament are constantly updated. The de Belen Museum in Alicante has masterpieces made by great masters from around the world: José Luis Lebria from Madrid, Castells Marty Martin from Barcelona, ​​Pedro Ramirez Pazos from Ereza, and other craftsmen from Salamanca, Valencia, Jerez de la Frontera, Murcia, Germany, Poland, Portugal and Japan.
