Valentine’s Day: give a getaway to Alicante!
Saint Valentine is the patron saint of lovers, and to him is dedicated the feast of the 14 of February. It is one of our favorite dates because it is a day to enjoy love and to celebrate that we have the loved one at our side.
Did you know that this feast goes back sixteen centuries? The legend says that the saint was a Roman doctor who became a priest to marry young lovers, especially soldiers, who could not marry their partners. Emperor Claudius II ordered his execution for daring to disobey him. In his honor, all the lovers dedicate this day to their patron.
