Sant Jordi's Day is coming!

Posted by: Hostal Marenostrum at 2013-04-10

Next 23rd April we celebrate Sant Jordi's Day.

The most popular legend in Catalonia about Sant Jordi tells that at Montblanc, in Conca de Barberà, there was a terrible dragon which viciously attacked men and beasts. To pacify it, lots were drawn and a person was chosen to be given as a sacrifice to the monster. One day, the misfortune fell on the king's daughter, who would have died in the beast's claws if it had not been for the arrival of a handsome knight (Sant Jordi) who challenged the dragon and killed it. This same legend, although with slight variations, is told as a popular legend in England, Portugal and Greece.

The tradition is that men give a rose to their girlfriends and they give boys a book.
