Girona is well-known as ‘The City of Festivals’, but it is without a doubt the Temps de Flors (the Flower Festival) that is the brightest of them all. What started as a small flower show and competition over 50 years ago is now one of the biggest and best events in Spain. Girona has made it modern, colourful and creative.

The flower festival takes place at the same time as the International Festival of A Capella Music, so you will have a chance to hear great music in the city while visiting during this period. The festival takes place every May.
