Temps de Flors Girona
Flower Festival Girona
Every year Girona celebrates Temps de Flors, an open air exhibition held till May 20 this year. For a few days, the colours and aromas of flowers fill the squares and streets of the city of Girona, the Capital of the province with the same name and the Costa Brava region. For an amazing stay on the Costa Brava, BE APARTMENT offers you the most elegant Luxury Apartments in various towns of the Coast. This weekend Girona becomes a huge canvas for its artists where the beauty of the floral compositions is in perfect harmony with the city's gorgeous architectural and historical heritage.
Since it was first held in 1954, the celebration has moved around some of Girona's best-known landmarks. In 1993, Temps de Flors became an official route that enables visitors to enter courtyards and gardens of the buildings of great cultural interest that are not open to the general public during the rest of the year. Some of the most popular places of Temps de Flors are the Arab Baths, la Casa Lleó Avinay, La Basilica de San Feliu, the steps of the Cathedral, els Jardins del Alemanys Torre Gironella, la Plaza dels Jurats, les Serraïnes and the churches of Sant Nicolau and Sant Lluc. Apart from the artistic displays, Temps de Flors Girona includes many other activities with something for everyone: flowers, photography and film competitions, among others. You can also enjoy A-Cappella music festival and many other activities worth experiencing.
At the gastronomic level Temps de Flors is no less attractive, since many restaurants in Girona offer menus made of flowers! You can try a prawn salad with flower petals and violet perfume, duck with acacia flowers or fruit tartar with peppermint and violets. At night you can enjoy "Flors de nit" with different snacks, cocktails, tapas, cakes and sweets that have flowers as an ingredient and can be tasted from 8pm.
