The Blauets choir school at Lluc. | M. À. Cañellas
The increase of COVID-19 infections in recent weeks has seriously affected the sanctuary of Lluc, with many people cancelling reservations to spend Christmas at the sanctuary. Five days before Christmas Eve, sources at Lluc confirm that occupancy is below 50 percent due to the cancellations, at the beginning of the month the rate of reservations was good and the forecast was to have good figures. Pre-pandemic spending a few days at Lluc during the Christmas holidays was a well-established tradition in Mallorca and the sanctuary was always at full capacity.
