6 travel books to give on Sant Jordi's Day

22.04.2021 Local festivities

On April 23, Sant Jordi festivity is celebrated in Catalonia, this popular Catalan celebration use to fill the streets and squares with plenty of books and roses stalls. There is nothing more romantic than live through a Sant Jordi's Day in Catalonia, walking and giving books and roses to your loved ones. A day to celebrate love and literature too.

Unfortunately, this year, because of Covid-19 crisis, this holiday has been affected, so it has adapted to the current situation. It will be celebrated according to the sanitary regulations and recommendations.

Unlike 2020, this 2021 there is a scrap of hope. There will be fewer stalls selling books and roses, and they will be located through different point of the cities, instead of taking up the traditional boulevards and main squares, so this year you will be able to walk the streets of your city with your favourite person.
