On April 23 the Day of Sant Jordi. In Catalunya - and in recent times elsewhere in the world, is celebrated on the book and the rose. A party of 23 April that for centuries has served to commemorate the heroic deeds of the martyr and legend of chivalry later, it is necessary to add the latest conclusion in time: the party of the book that extols the value of culture.
Although the day of Sant Jordi is no work or school holiday, our streets are filled with stalls of books, roses and people who walk. It is the national day of Catalonia and live fully in the street, especially if the accompanying teimpo. Comes to know the new books and being able to bring the authors to sign copies of his books.
