When 23 April draws near, Vila-seca gets ready to host Sant Jordi’s Day with a schedule full of family activities. There are stories, workshops, crafts and games all surrounding the legend of Saint George, the patron saint of Catalonia. On this day, men traditionally give women roses while the women give the men books.
During Sant Jordi’s Day, you will see street exhibitions, competitions, storytellers, poetry readings and children’s activities… and the town is also naturally replete with book and rose stands in Plaça de l’Església (Church Square) and Plaça de Voltes.
For the last few years, the Vila-seca Town Council, in collaboration with Tarragona and Reus Art and Design Schools, has promoted the urban project ‘Ephemeral: Street Art’, which converts the streets of Vila-seca’s historic city centre into a lively cultural space featuring books and artistic creations.
