Sant Jordi’s Day in Barcelona
Love and culture are a classic in the Catalan capital. However, in Catalonia, Sant Jordi’s Day is celebrated every year on April 23, which is when couples and friends give each other a rose and a book, regardless of order and gender.
For this reason, for many years in Barcelona this typical and beautiful exchange of gifts has been carried out, which is also not exclusive to couples, but also takes place between family and friends.
Currently, the genre of rose and books has changed a lot and it is normal for a man to receive a rose and a woman to receive a book.
The atmosphere is usually centered on the main central streets of Barcelona, especially in the area of Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, Paseo de Gracia and in the main squares of the neighborhoods throughout the city.
It is here where you can find people living off a festive day, going out for a walk through the large number of stalls that sell roses and books throughout Barcelona.
Holy Week in Barcelona
This 2022 Holy Week falls in the month of April, so the city is filled with tourists eager to discover the essence of Barcelona.
However, as these are very special dates, which is also when the vast majority of Barcelonans choose to leave the city, keep in mind that the main neighborhoods of Barcelona always organize cultural and religious events in commemoration of Easter.
That is why we recommend you to investigate on the council’s websites or get lost in the city to let it surprise you at your own pace and style. Finally, you can always visit the main churches of the city, where the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral of Barcelona or the Cathedral of the Sea among many others stand out.

Although the April fair is an authentic celebration of Seville, in recent years it has also been celebrated in other corners of the Spanish territory, such as Barcelona. Due to the great Andalusian immigration in Catalonia, the April fair is also held in the Catalan capital with great commercial success that lasts until May.
So if you like to get to know more cultures outside of Barcelona, we invite you to discover the essence of Seville and its customs on the esplanade of the Parc del Fòrum where you can enjoy live music, dances and typical food together with the best atmosphere of the flamenco tradition. that you cannot miss.
