Since the 15TH century, on April the 23rd, Catalonia celebrates the Sant Jordi’s Day. A celebration to honour its patron, as well as their protector hero, who, as the legend says, defeated the dragon and rescued the princess, as a symbol of victory against the evil.
Ever since, Sant Jordi has been proclaimed the patron of lovers in Catalonia. Following tradition, every man offers their beloved one a rose with a Senyera and a corn leaf, and in return, women offer a book to them.
For a more enjoyable experience in Barcelona, from the Hotel Miramar we recommend you a visit to the MNAC: Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia). There you will discover works of art of the most representative catalan artists, but also some collections of international performers. The museum is located in Montjuïc hill like our hotel, and you'll find it near plaça Espanya and the famous Magic Fountain of Montjuïc too.
Barcelona is a creative, modern, cosmopolitan and welcoming city with a long industrial and commercial tradition.
Both for the privileged position as for its character of Mediterranean city, the Catalan capital has become a city of top class fairs, conferences and conventions. It is among the best in the sector in Europe and is already regarded as a global city, associated with a powerful brand that is recognized and admired worldwide.
