Have you ever seen a city decorated only with flowers? Temps de Flors is an exhibition held in May, from May 13 to May 21 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 Costa Brava, BE APARTMENT offers you the most elegant Luxury Apartments in various towns of the Coast.
Following the exhibition route is a thrilling experience, a real gift for the senses. Girona becomes a huge canvas for artistic expression, where the beauty of the floral compositions is in perfect harmony with the city's wonderful architectural and historical heritage.
Since it was first held in 1954, the exhibition has moved around some of the city'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 also includes many other activities with something for everyone: flowers, photography and film competitions, among others; the A-Cappella music festival; participation in the putting together of flower displays; and many other activities worth experiencing.
At the gastronomic level the proposal is no less suggestive, since many restaurants in Girona offer menus made of flowers! Such as the prawn salad with flower petals and violet perfume; duck with acacia flowers or fruit tartar with the essence of peppermint and violets. At night you can enjoy the flowers with "Flors de nit" which offers snacks, cocktails, tapas, cakes and sweets that have flowers as an ingredient and can be tasted from 8pm.
That's why Temps de Flors has grown famous beyond Catalan borders and has contributed to raising the profile of the town as a tourist destination. It is an unique opportunity to enjoy Girona in a different way, to feel its great animation and to participate in a week of events linked to the contest.
