The history of St. George's Day in Spain is associated with a beautiful legend and it begins in the distant IV century. As the old legend says, in the small Catalan city of Mont Blanc, the evil dragon horrified the locals. To calm the anger of the monster, the inhabitants had to sacrifice jewelry, animals or even people. One day the lot fell on the king's daughter and the king offered the hand and heart of the princess to the one who will save her. St. George fought with a monster and defeated him with his spear. On the place where the blood was shed, rose garden grew and Saint George presented to the princess the most beautiful of them.
Since then, the Day of the Lovers in Spain can not take place without such attributes as roses. According to ancient tradition, since XV century it has become customary to give roses to beloved women, and the books to the men.
Every year on the day of lovers Barcelona turns into one of the most beautiful and romantic places. On the holiday of Sant Jordi, Barcelona is buried in flowers, and there are book fairs.
