What they're billing as The World's Largest Nativity Scene is on display these days in Simon Bolivar Park. It weighs 700 tons, measures 18,000 square meters and includes 200 real people who act out 35 different Biblical scenes, according to El Tiempo.
We visited Simon Bolivar Park during today's bike tour, but didn't actually visit the nativity scene, which cost 7,500 pesos. With or without the nativity scene, the park is worth visiting. It was quiet today, despite the sunny weather, probably because so many bogotanos have left town for the holidays.
