As in Valentines Day, men give their girlfriends roses, but women in return give their husbands and boyfriends a book. This is to honor the simultaneous deaths of Miguel Cervantes and William Shakespeare.
If in Barcelona, try for a Barcelona hotel on or near the La Rambla, such as the offers of http://www.BarcelonaPoint.com/
At the end of the day, you will be hard-pressed to find a woman who does not have a rose in hand.
The national dance of Catalonia, the Sardana is performed at the Paca Sant Jaume, and this takes place throughout the day. Many book stores hold 24-hour marathon readings of Miguel Cerevantes’s masterpiece, ‘Don Quixote’. Moreover, there are various street performers and musicians who create a romantic ambience around the festivities. All hotels in Barcelona are packed to capacity before April 23, which speaks volumes about the popularity of the festival.
