Sant Jordi, on 23th April, is one of the most important days in Barcelona (and all Catalonia) and it is based in Saint George legend.
That day I was in Barcelona with two chinese friends, who enjooyed the festivity for first time.
We took a lot of photos like this:
The day is also called "the day of the rose and the book", for this reason, the tradition consist in:
- boys give roses to girls (the color of the rose doesn't matter, annd now there are many types)
- girls give books to the boys
But some people receive both :)
My sister bought a book for me and my friends gave me a multicolor rose! (Like the first photo)
I was very happy ^^ Moreover we could see a lot of celebrities signing his books.
