  • 23rd April: On the day of Sant Jordi in Barcelona- as in all of Catalonia - people give one another a rose or a book. And its not only couples that do this. The Generalitat in Plaa de Sant Jaume is open to the public. In the palace and around it there is a large rose market. You can buy books everywhere.Documents show that the tradition of giving away roses as a symbol of love on the day of Sant Jordi, dates back to the 15th century, even if not the exact date is known. In 1995 UNESCO declared 23rd April as World Book and Copyright Day.

  • The 23rd April is the anniversary of the death of writers William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes. They both died on the same day on 23rd April and in the same year of 1616. In actual fact Cervantes' death was 10 days earlier, because Spain was using the Gregorian calendar at the time, while England used the Julian calendar, and the two calendars are slightly different.Patio of theCathedral
