SANt JORDI AT LA ROCA VILLAGE

Do you know about the ancient tradition of Sant Jordi ?

Do you know about the ancient tradition of Sant Jordi (Saint George)? It’s one of the most important days in Catalonia, where couples celebrate the day of love.

But it’s not about sweets and chocolate, instead men receive a book and a red rose is given to women. This comes from a long tradition, based on the story of a knight, called Jordi, who killed a dragon and from the blood of that dragon a rose grew. He was a hero for the whole population. 

Still, after all these years, the streets are decorated in red, with Catalan flags, lots of roses and a breath of happiness.
