The annual sand nativity scene on Las Canteras beach is the world's biggest and a must visit if you come to Las Palmas in December.

The sculpture is on the beach at the north end of Las Canteras by the big Christmas tree and Plaza Saulo Torón. It's so big that you can walk around it and this year it features seven nativity scenes and a Canarian landscape. 

This year's sculpture is an international effort with Russian, Turkish, Italian and Canarian artists working together to create and maintain the sculptures. 

Entry is free, but you can make a charitable donation at the gate; The sculpture raised 17,000 euros last year. The money goes to food banks in Gran Canaria.

This year's Belen de arena is open from December 4, 2015, until January 6, 2016.
