Some interesting facts.

Some things you may or may not know about Barcelona:

  • Sant Jordi, or St. George, is the patron saint of Barcelona and St. George’s Day is the Catalan Valentine’s Day. Boys give girls a rose, and girls give boys a book.
  • It has taken longer to build the Sagrada Familia than the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Much longer. It is estimated to be finished in 2026.
  • None of the beaches in Barceloneta are real. Before 1992, it was an industrial area. The area was completely changed for the olympics many years ago and turned into a leisure area with upscale restaurants.
