Sant Jordi Day in Barcelona: A Day for Literature and Love

Sant Jordi is the name of St George in Catalan. As St George day, Sant Jordi is on 23 April. For most of the people in Barcelona and Catalonia, this is the most romantic day in the year, the “El Día de los Amantes” (Lovers Day) and sometimes “El Día de la Rosa” (Rose Day). Sant Jordi is not a public holiday, but it is a cultural and romantic festival for everyone.
