Scavenger Hunt: “Barcelona Dragons”, Barcelona, Spain

Many years ago, there was a town terrorized by a dragon. The dragon used to visit the village for food every day. One day the village run out of food and a young princess was offered to the dragon. When George heard about this, he rode into the village, slayed the dragon and rescued the princess.

From the blood of the princess appeared a rose that George gave to the princess as a proof of love. Since that moment every year on April the 23rd, the inhabitants of Barcelona offer roses to their beloved ones following the tradition.

You can find, especially in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona many representations of the dragon and George so don't forget a day being there to go and hunt for them. :-))

In this series of pictures you can find some dragons in the most visited places for them.
