Explore the History of Valentine's Day
Did you know that St. Valentine was Italian? St. Valentine was a Christian martyr who lived in the third century A.D. His basilica stood just opposite the gate of the Holy City; the gate itself was called after St. Valentine, before it became known as the Gate of the People. It was in Rome during the fifteenth century that St. Valentine's feast day became the day devoted to affianced couples.
