Primavera • 7
Tomorrow is celebrated in Catalonia the day of Sant Jordi. Historically, men gave roses to women and women gave to men a book to celebrate the occasion.
"A rose for love and a book forever."
In the Ramblas of Barcelona thousands of stands of roses and makeshift bookstalls are hastily set-up for the occasion. By the end of the day, some four million roses and 800,000 books will have been purchased. Most women will carry a rose in hand, and half of the total yearly book sales in Catalonia take place on this occasion.
