St. Jordi's Day
St. Jordi's Day is the Valentine's Day of Catalonia. It's a day to celebrate a legend involving dragons and royalty. In order to celebrate it, men buy roses for the women and the women buy books for the men. There are book and rose stands set up on just about every street corner on St. Jordi's Day, which brings even more life to the beautiful city or Barcelona.
