Valentine s Day in Paris

by - Monday, February 13, 2017

Saint Valentine´s Day celebrated on 14th of February goes back to the Roman Empire. Saint Valentine of Rome is said to have been helping the persecuted Christians and have been arranging the weddings of the soldiers who were prohibited to marry at that time. Imprisoned, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of the prison´s keeper and sent her a goodbye letter signed Your Valentine that nowadays has become the symbol of the pure love alongside with the heart-shaped and winged notes, angels, Cupid and doves.
The capital of France is known to be the love mecca. Despite the fact Paris is full of love cliche, it is still the most romantic city in the world that has all the ingredients for the perfect Saint Valentine´s Day potion.
