Live one of the most emblematic days of the Catalan capital, Sant Jordi. As every April 23, the city is adorned with roses and books to celebrate the Day of the book, and the particular day of the lovers of Catalonia.
Every April 23, Barcelona is full of book and rose stops throughout the day, a tradition shared by locals and tourists alike. The most cultural and romantic day of the calendar is not a day to stay at home and apart from going down on the Ramblas to walk, the city is full of activities to do.
The Day of Sant Jordi, patron saint of Catalonia, is a celebration that over the years has acquired a vindictive tone of Catalan culture. That is why many balconies in the city are adorned with roses. The central elements of the celebration are culture and love -represented with the book and the rose- and in Barcelona the main meeting point is located in La Rambla, which is filled to overflowing with booksellers and florists.
In Catalonia, the day of lovers is April 23, a holiday during which those who love it express it in a special and symbolic way by giving away a rose and a book.
