Christmas Time in Spain

With the arrival of the month of December the streets of this northern

city in Spain, Oviedo, are covered in Christmas decorations.

The winter darkness dresses itself in lights with beautiful avenues

decorated in detail. The cathedral square serves as a stage to the

Nativity year after year. Residents and visitors stroll down the streets

to enjoy the warmth of the Christmas atmosphere.

La Navidad en España

Al llegar el mes de diciembre las calles de la ciudad de Oviedo,

España, se llenan de adornos navideños.

La oscuridad del invierno se viste de luces con avenidas decoradas

en detalle. En la plaza de la catedral preside cada año el Belén, y

residentes y visitantes se pasean una vez más por las calles para

disfrutar del caluroso ambiente navideño.img_8334m img_8327m
