Since 1954 the city of Girona has hosted the Temps de Flors (Time of Flowers). The huge exhibition has made the city a canvas for artistic expression. Surrounded by the city’s historical and architectural heritage you will discover over 150 displays of flowers. The week-long festival fills the city with the aromas of thousands of flowers and decorates it with bright colorful displays. The flower festival is one of the busiest times of the year in Girona.
