Sant Jordi 2014: La llegenda de Sant Jordi

  • Things to do, Walks and tours

Time Out says

On the eve of the Sant Jordi festival, the Born Cultural Centre celebrates with a parade of the knight himself and his entourage. The delegation will consist of a hundred characters involved in the representation of the legend of Sant Jordi de Montblanc, with the royal family accompanied by nobles, soldiers and civilians. The parade sets off from the Santa María del Mar church at 6pm. At Fossar de les Moreres, Sant Jordi will leave a rose. Finally, the procession arrives at Plaça Comercial. Before the Born Cultural Centre, Sant Jordi will give the rose to the princess, greet the authorities, and they'll perform two dances. Then everyone will be escorted to the Sala Moragues (6.30pm), for the official presentation of the film 'La llegenda de Sant Jordi' ('The Legend of Sant Jordi', in Catalan). There will be a brief introduction to put the short film in context. The next day, on the day of the Sant Jordi festival itself, passes will be available to see the short every hour on the hour from 11am to 7pm in the Sala Moragues, and outside, in Plaça Comercial, they'll have stalls with books and roses.
