Giant Nativity Scene by Bordallo Pinheiro to celebrate Christmas in Viseu

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

The giant nativity scene commissioned by the municipality of Viseu to Fábrica de Faianças Bordallo Pinheiro is already one of the Christmas "stars" in the city of Viriato. The activities program developed by the City Council highlights, among its main attractions, the new nativity scene. The Holy Family, made in white pottery, promises to be the main character of the Christmas decoration in Viseu. Valued at roughly 10 thousand euros, the three pieces - Jesus, Mary and Joseph - were, in the end, offered by Bordallo Pinheiro to the city of Viseu. This wonderful nativity scene is now part of the city’s heritage.
