Sant Jordi

And finally came one of the most expected days… Sant Jordi! Every year, on 23rd April, roses and books, romance and read. The legend, which you probably have already heard, is that Saint Jordi slew a dragon to save a princess – and then gave her a red rose. So the tradition is to give books for men and roses for women. Today you will find many stalls at Las Ramblas selling roses and books…

St Jordi’s Day is a good day for telling someone you love him. Also you can tell a lot of funny and sweet things to your friends! If you want to send a message, click here.
