Roses, Reading, and Romance.

April 22nd, 2016

Are you feeling the love this weekend?

April 23rd happens to be Barcelona’s most romantic day of the year, giving Cupid quite a run for his money.

Known as Sant Jordi Day, the Catalan tradition dictates that gents give ladies a single rose while women give a book in return. Throughout the city, you’ll see plenty of makeshift book and rose stalls lining the streets, encouraging love birds to celebrate.

Joining in on the festivities, Majestic Hotel and Spa in Barcelona sets up a rose stand offering ‘pay what you can’ roses. All proceeds will go to the Fundacio IRES, helping children at risk of social exclusion. Celebrating a loved one and giving back? A win win in our book.

Even if you can’t make it to Barcelona this weekend, grab your sweetheart and celebrate on Saturday. All of us at AMPR plan on enjoying the holiday with a little Gaudi reading material, some roses, and of course….a glass or two of rosé.
