Sant Jordi’s Day in the city

Despite the wind, rain and hailstones, Sant Jordi’s Day left some unforgettable images to celebrate love and culture. People in Barcelona filled the streets again to stroll around the stalls, buy roses and look for the best books to give on a day when normality finally returned, but with some changes too.

The main change this year was the literary superblock in the city centre, in L’Eixample, between Av. Diagonal and Gran Via and the streets of Balmes and Pau Claris. Four kilometres with flower stalls and booksellers, free of cars and fumes and offering a space for everybody to enjoy.

Damage to stalls because of bad weather

Our full support goes to all those who sustained light injuries and to the booksellers whose stalls were damaged by the rain, wind and hail. Those in charge of the Barcelona Institute of Culture will be meeting with the Cambra del Llibre, the Gremi d’Editors, the Gremi de Llibreters and the Gremi de Llibreters de Vell to analyse the damage and consider future action.
