Saints Day of Sant Lluc - October 18th

October 18th is the Saints Day of Sant Lluc or Saint Luke the Evangelist and a few autumn fairs in Catalonia are celebrated in his name.

Sant Lluc was one of Saint Paul's disciples and is author the Gospel According to Luke, which was probably written around AD 70.

He was from Antioch on the Orontes in Syria so he wasn't a Jew but he was fluent in Greek and he was also a doctor.

He is the patron saint of artists and doctors and in Barcelona of the guilds of plumbers and painters as well as of the town of Ulldecona.
