The first place we visited was a white Moorish village named “Arcos de la Frontera.” Arcos in Spanish is “arches” and during Christmas they decorate the entire village to look like Bethlemen (Belén) at the time of Christ’s birth. As you walk the streets you see little scenes along the way from that time (Herod’s palace, the nativity, the bakery, the carpenter, the Inn, a Jewish wedding, etc.), complete with arches made from palm leaves. This was one of my very favorite experiences from our whole trip. Maybe it was the magic of fresh air and new eyes, but I loved this evening. It helped too that my little girl slept the whole time, YAY for jet lag!
