La Fiesta De San Jordi in Barcelona
St Georges Day is celebrated in all nations where Saint George is the patron Saint. Almost all countries celebrate St. Georges Day on 23 April, which is traditionally accepted as the day when Saint George died. In Barcelona the day has a twist.
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.

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.
