Saint Jordi, the holy patron of Catalonia, is celebrated on April the 23rd. This is a day celebrated with books and roses to be given among the people we love. Thousands of people stroll downtown to get mixed in the happy crowd, looking for editorial novelties and red flowers!
Casa Batlló is one of the most important architectural works in Barcelona, designed by Architect Antonio Gaudi). Today, we discovered a beautiful ephemeral installation which makes it stand out on Sant Jordi's Day.
Let´s remember that the facade of this building makes certain references to the old legend: the roof resembles the dragon skin; the uppermost balcony resembles a rose.
An impressive installation with hundreds of roses hangs from the curvy balconies. It makes a vibrant red tapestry effect. What a better way to show passion for this day?
