      Hola Phil 🙂
      As yet they are not live, however as Easter is a bit earlier this year, and Lent starts on the 10th February whereas this year it was 18th, then we can assume everything should be around 1 week earlier in 2016. I’ll see if the tourist authority knows yet, and let you know if they do 🙂
      Hasta luego
