RAFI stages a great museum belen
It featured an antique figurine collection that depicts not just the birth of Christ but as well as the Annunciation and the Finding of Jesus in the Temple. The set up marks the 27th anniversary of the museum’s opening. It is open until January so you better check it out.
The belen originates as a Spanish word for Bethlehem. It is a 3D art depiction of the nativity of Jesus Christ.
The Casa Gorordo Museum is a 19th Century residence of the first Cebuano Bishop Juan Garces Gorordo. When RAFI obtained the Casa Gorordo, they continued the house traditions of the Gorordo family not just the setting up of the belen but the original Sinug dance, Semana Santa and Pista ni San Juan among others.
