    Sant Jordi in Catalonia Sant Jordi in Catalonia Presentation Transcript

    • Sant Jordi in CataloniaComenius Multilateral Project “ Here we are” 2011-2013
    •  Sant Jordi, Saint George, and his legend are well known around Europe. He is the saint patron of Catalonia, England, Bulgaria, Romania, as well as other countries.
    •  In Catalonia, the legend of Saint George is located in Montblanc, a medieval town not far away from Bellpuig.
    • Tradition in Catalonia St Georges Day is a great day to be in Catalonia. The streets of all the Catalan towns are full of people. There are lots of stalls selling books and roses.
    •  The celebration can’t be simpler: people walk, buy a rose, a book or both, to give them to the loved ones, family and friends. It is the Catalan day of lovers. The day is a singular national holiday held on a weekday.
    •  The origin of this festival is found in a mixture of traditions and different eras. St. George is the patron saint of Catalonia (officially since 1456, although he is well venerated since the eighth century). There was also a Medieval Fair of roses to celebrate love at the Palau de la Generalitat in Barcelona, the capital city of Catalonia. The Book Day, established in Barcelona in 1926, was integrated to these traditions.
