Siesta feeling on a hot Saturday afternoon in April. People are sitting on the rich green grass of Bonifacio High Street, listening to a multilingual poetry recitation or browsing in newly bought books, while a guitarist plays flamenco music in the background. Instituto Cervantes has invited to the yearly Dia del Libro (International Book Day) and booklovers as well as fans of Spanish culture flock to the Fort.
The International Book Day is the annual holiday for all the bookworms around the globe. If you love literature and poetry, do not miss the Dia del Libro, a book fair and cultural event organized by the Instituto Cervantes!
The Dia del Libro 2014 at the Instituto Cervantes was smaller than in the last years. Nevertheless, many visitors still came to look for Spanish books, watch Spanish movies, and eat tortilla or paella.
