“Sant Jordi” is the patron saint of Catalonia. On the 23rd of April Catalonia celebrates the Sant Jordi’s Day, that is also called the “day of lovers”. In that date lovers are supposed to give as a present a red rose and a book to their loved ones.

Let’s have a nice gathering on April 22nd by celebrating with us Sant Jordi’s Day in the beautiful location of Brockton Pavilion at Stanley Park
