April 23th is Sant Jordi and the day for lovers!
Hostal Mare Nostrum wants to talk today about a very important date for the city of Barcelona and the whole Catalunya: El Dia de Sant Jordi (Saint George's Day). 23th of April is Saint George, the patron saint of Catalunya. Every year the streets of all catalan towns are full of roses of all colors and books with their respective authors whom offer to sign their works. It's a classic go for a walk by the great ambient of Las Ramblas (or leaning out on the balcony from Hostal Mare Nostrum) and watch the beautiful traditional show in wich couples they exchange books and roses celebrating the day of love, because here it's considered the native alternative to Saint Valentine's day. Do not miss it!
