Saint George is the Catalonia’s version of Valentine’s Day and is one day festival of romance, roses and books all inspired by the legend of Saint George on 23rd April every year. The legend of Saint George, which provably have heard, is that Saint George slew a dragon to save a princess, and then plucked a red rose for the princess from a rose bush, which had sprouted on the exact spot, where the dragon’s red blood had spilled.
And for this reason, on Saint George day the men in Catalonia give their sweetheart a red rose, and in recent years a new Saint George tradition is that the ladies give the men a book. There are bookstalls, book markets and rose markets all over the coast towns.
