A day of books, roses, open doors and loads of activities for everyone!
For many, Barcelona is at its most beautiful on Sant Jordi. It is a day when everyone takes to the streets, walking around the city to buy books and roses for their loved-ones. It is a celebration of culture, traditions and joy, which everyone can identify with. This is why, during Sant Jordi, more than ever, Barcelona belongs to those who are out in its streets. One of the most popular activities are the open doors events at many emblematic buildings. These include the Barcelona City Council, Government of Catalonia, Ateneu Barcelonès, Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, Biblioteca de Catalunya and Palau Güell, to name just a few. It's a great opportunity to explore these spaces we normally only see from the outside.
Plus, there are loads of activities of all sorts that everyone can enjoy. As has become traditional, there will be blood-donation centres set up in several locations, including the Sagrada Família and Poblenou-Manuel Arranz libraries. There will also be workshops all over the city, including one on handicrafts at Montserrat Abelló library and one on writing on Avinguda Sant Ramon Nonat. You can listen to music at the Barceloneta library and dance sardanes in Plaça Sant Jaume. All of this and much more on 23 April around the city and throughout the day. Take to the streets to celebrate Sant Jordi!
The full programme is available on the Barcelona City Council website.
