HAPPY DAY OF SANT JORDI 2020

Legend has it that in the town of Montblanc, there was a terrible dragon that caused havoc between men and beasts. To contain it, the residents of the town chose an inhabitant by lot and gave it to the monster to devour it. One day, it was the turn of the king's daughter, who had to die at the hands of the beast due to chance. However, a knight named Jordi appeared to confront the dragon and prevent the princess from dying. The knight managed to kill the monster and, from its spilled blood, a rosebush of red flowers was born.
