A compelling visual gallery which takes you on a photographic tour to la diada de sant jordi in barcelona.


The Day of the Rose and the Book is a Catalan holiday held on April 23 every year. This day is specially colourful because the people maintain the tradition of giving a rose or a book to their loved ones during the celebration.

And so, you can find a lot of stands selling roses and books all over the cities and towns. Also the readers have the opportunity to meet their favourite authors in book signings. The Palau de la Generalitat, a government building, is also decorated with roses and opened to the public.

A gallery of unique and must-see photos. Enjoy of this day's atmosphere in which romanticism and culture come together!
