It is well worth visiting Barcelona all year round, but if there is a particular day to be there that day is on 23 April. On that date Barcelona celebrates Sant Jordi (Saint George), the patron saint of Catalonia, and although the 23 of April isn’t a public holiday, it’s always a celebration. Don’t expect saints clutching swords or dragons dripping blood: it’s a day for lovers, authors, book signings and rose stalls. Read more details here.

Barcelona is a lovely city, José Ignacio. As you say, well worth visiting at any time, especially on its holiday.
Right you’re Margot, but that day is special.
