SANT JORDI'S LEGEND
The Legend says that there was a dragon that frightened Montblanc town, located in south Catalonia. To avoid his ferocious attacks, every day a person was elected and offered by a popular raffle to the monster until one day the princess suffered the bad luck and was given to the beast. When she was about to be devoured, Sant Jordi appeared, a brave knight who fought with the dragon and won, he stabbed its heart with his sword and rescued the beautiful princess.
Then, the blood that flowed from the dragon´s Heart turned to a rosebush.
– From this rosebush the knight cut a rose and offered it to the princess. –
