Valentine's Day Barcelona

Valentine's day in Barcelona

Valentines day is celebrated on 14th February every year.  There are no special celebrations in Barcelona for Valentines day and some say Valentine's day is an articificial occasion
hyped-up by greeting card manufacturers, chocolatiers, candlestick makers and restaurateurs. Maybe so but what’s wrong with that? It still above love and affection and that works for most of us.

 So we think every day should be Valentine’s day!

Barcelona and Catalonia does have it own more traditional romantic day of celebration, which is celebrated every year on 23rd March and  called St Jordi’s Day, so in Barcelona we can be thankful for two lovely days of romance and flowers and in Barcelona the guys get books on Sant Jordis Day.  Just another reason why Barcelona is a nice place to live!
