Travel Guide

The magic of Lucia is stunningly evoked here and is a magical time of the year. Children dress in white with garlands of flowers and candles around their heads and sing early morning carols.
The festival is one to celebrate with family and friends and the  ‘coming of the light’ is marked with food and drink as well as song. Ginger biscuits, saffron buns and coffee make this a celebration to remember. Imagine sitting in a church when all is dark outside, children wearing candles around their heads, all dressed in white, the only sound in the quiet, calming church.
Utterly beguiling
