Books and roses will be the stars of the show along the streets of Palma on Sunday the 23rd of April because this is the day when the island celebrates St. George’s Day, an unmissable date on the book lovers’ calendar. Are you a literature fan? Carry on reading.
Due to construction work in the Plaza España, the book stalls have been relocated to La Rambla, which is great news because the books will be displayed alongside flowers – all the flower sellers will be open – on this special day dedicated to intellectual enjoyment. Everyone attending on St. George’s Day will receive a 10 % discount on any books they buy.
The route for Sant Jordi 2023 starts in La Rambla and leads to the Paseo del Born, passing by Vía Roma, Calle Blanquerna, Calle San Miguel, Plaza Mayor, Calle Marqués del Palmer and the Plaza de Cort. There will be stalls from 29 bookshops belonging to the Mallorca Booksellers Association: Agapea, Curolletes, El Corte Inglés, Es Raconet, Espai Caramulls, Ínsula literaria, Lila y els contes, Libreria Campus, Llibres Ramon Llull, La Salina, Little Rata, Embat, Come in Palma, Finis Africae, Llibres Colom, La biblioteca de Babel, Abacus, Gotham, Lluna, Quart Creixent, Univers del Còmic, Baobab, Drac Màgic, Quars, FNAC, Casa del Libro, Rata Corner, Literanta and La Librera del Savoy.
