February 14 is Valentine’s day. We propose enjoy it in Sitges. Its celebration is widespread all over the world. Couples use this day to mutually express their affection and love. Its origin dates back to the 3rd century. Valentine was a priest who lived in the time of Emperor Claudio II, who decided to ban marriages for young people. He believed that single people without families, having no ties and would be best soldiers.

The priest considered this measure unfair and began to marry youth in love secretly. Claudio II, the Emperor found out and ordered Valentine to be imprisoned. The priest was martyred and executed. Since then, tribute is paid through a day in which the streets and shops are filled with hearts. There are people who enjoy this day very much and use it as leverage to buy gifts to their loved ones.
