Temps de Flors in Girona
A burst of Spring colours!
Girona Temps de Flors is a wonderful floral festival held every year in the city of Girona to welcome spring. This year it will be held between 7 - 15 May. Throughout the entire city, monuments and courtyards will be decorated with flowers.
Compared to other traditions in Spain, this particular one is still rather young (since 1955) and began as a simple flower show in the church of Santo Domingo. Today the floral displays reaches throughout the city, and the owners of gardens and courtyards open them up to the general public.
Some flower arrangements are as colorful as a carnival. Other arrangements this year include those created by the children of the city, making for quirky but also wonderful to behold displays. You can find traditional exhibitions, but also experimental displays in the field of floral arrangement. City hall and Plaça del Vi will also be decorated including the huge staircase that gets carpeted in flowers each year.
Also you can enjoy various parts of the festival such as 'Juegos de Luz' (play of light), water paintings, sculptures, and musical performances that take place in different parts of Girona. Do not miss this event if you are traveling in spring to the Costa Brava!
