Sant Jordi Day in Barcelona – Roses and Books for everyone

  • Date:23 - Apr - 2013
  • Location:Barcelona
  • Venue:Catalunya

Sant Jordi, the they of the book and the rose is arriving! Next 23 rd of April Barcelona and Catalunya are  celebrating their valentine’s day.

Roses and books invade catalan cities and it’s a very old tradition that girls give as a present a book to their boyfriends, husbands, fathers, brothers  and men give to  girls they love like wifes, girlfriends, friends, sisters and daughters a beautiful rose. But in the end, girls receive asl well a book, we win allways 😉 haha

On the photo you can see my mum’s bookstore decorated with the catalan flag and the roses and books. It is an antiquarian bookstore and she sells antique and rare books but you can find aswell secondhand books quite new and for the half of the price. It is located in Aribau 24 and I will be working there on Sant Jordi to help her. So if you walk by just go inside and say hi!

This beautiful day I will record of course  and will show you the Sant Jordi day in Barcelona 😉
