La Capilla de la Natividad

Recommended Posts

Boquete's latest attraction is the Capilla de la Natividad, located in front of the Franciscan Seminary in Alto Boquete.

The attention to detail and execution of the construction project has been extremely well organized and it prompted me to stop in the other day.  (I am not a Catholic)

The Capilla was built to hold a very detailed display, including over 1000 figurines, of the 18 stations of the birth of Jesus Christ. It was assembled by a family from David.

La Capilla is open to all visitors 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 8: 00 p.m., 10:00 to 6:00 during summer, and 11:00 to 5:00 during the school year.

The structure houses 18 stations of the birth of the Child Jesus, embodied in more than a thousand pieces, which were located according to the biblical story with the main objective is to evangelize those who visit the chapel in this tourist region of the country.

During the visit, people listen to the biblical narrations of the 18 stations, which become illuminated as the biblical passages are related with their respective readings.

The Cardinal and Bishop of the Diocese of David, José Luis Lacunza, points out that it is an opportunity for all Panamanians and foreigners to have a personal encounter with the meaning of the Nativity of the Child God and the opportunity to visit this chapel and enjoy family the experience of finding all the passages of this birth which was built especially for the community.

He points out that from the date, many people can visit this new chapel, which is unique in the country and will remain open throughout the year so that visitors to the Boquete district can visit it.

Elida Nader, who visited the chapel of La Natividad, assures that every detail of the construction was taken care of to turn the structure into an environment that transports people to enjoy the Nativity and to reflect on the passages that are shown during the more than 45 minutes that delays the narration. He affirms that this new chapel comes to fill a void that existed in the community, since this structure allowed a family from the province of Chiriqui to decide to invest in the construction of this important work for the inhabitants of Tierras Altas.
