Brodies goes to Barcelona

April 23rd is La Diada de Sant Jordi. It has been Catalonia’s own form of Valentine’s Day since the Middle Ages and it is traditional to give a rose and a book to a loved one to celebrate the event.

The legend says that St George slew a terrifying dragon, saved the gorgeous princess and gave her a red rose that grew up from the blood spilt from the dragon. Thousands of stands selling dragon’s blood red roses, decorated with the red and yellow Catalan colours and improvised bookstalls are speedily set up for the day all over Catalonia. Street performers and musicians add a romantic ambience to nearly every public square and plaza.

Visit Barcelona on the 23rd of April and join in the transformation of Barcelona into a city of festivity.
