The House of Santa Claus


Christmas is so close that we can feel it. The socks are hanging, the letters were handed out to Santa and the trees are ready - Santa needs a place to leave gifts.


But how is it inside Santa Claus's house? Did he put up a decoration? Is it warm? Are there goblins everywhere? The children answer all these questions by visiting "A Casa do Papai Noel" (House of Santa Claus). The house is all made of wood and is open to visits until 5 January.


Those who pass by will be able to visit all the surroundings and, during the weekends, Santa Claus will be there waiting for the guests.
