When it comes to money…don’t fall for fairytales
A record-breaking Diada de Sant Jordi is expected. There will be more than 4,000 flower stalls and 1,000 book stalls in Barcelona alone. Literary activities will be held all over the country.
Catalonia is experiencing one of its most special festivities this Sunday. The Diada de Sant Jordi is, at the same time, St Valentine’s Day, Book Day and the day of the patron saint of Catalonia.
All of this, weather allowing, means that we can expect a successful event despite the Barça – Atlético de Madrid match. In fact, the Cambra del Llibre de Catalunya hopes to match the figures of 2022, when 1.7 million books were sold, with a total turnover of 22.5 million euros.
In addition to the Catalan capital, which will concentrate the stands in the centre between the streets Gran de Gràcia and La Rambla, the literary activities and stands will be held all over the country. In Tarragona the stops will be located on Rambla Nova, in Girona on Esplanada de la Copa and in Lleida you will find them on Avinguda Francesc Macià and Rambla de Ferran.
From 11Onze we would like to wish you a very good Diada. Enjoy the literature, but when it comes to talking about money… Don’t fall for fairytales!
