Herod, The Shepherds, The Christmas Star, The Royal Camp and The Nativity to tell the “History of the Magi from the East” in a linear route of 500 meters that runs through the park of l’Figueroaa in Benidorm. The pandemic has forced the traditional parade to be suspended but, in exchange, the little ones will be able to learn about the story of the tale of Their Majesties that is performed every year in the streets on January 5. But this time it will be static and with all security measures.

The pages of Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar who, in their name, classify and organize the letters with the requests of the children of Benidorm so that, during the early morning of the 6th, the Kings of the East visit their homes or the star that took them on their journey They are among what can be seen in the park.
Since 2015, ‘The Story of the Magi from the East’ is the story on which the municipal parade is based that this year cannot be celebrated. But, along the way, children and their families can move to Judea of the s. I, in which the evil Herod reigned protected by the legions of the Roman Empire and where a star announced the birth of a very special child whom the wise men from the East came to worship.
