Girona’s Flower Festival In Photos

Take one city that oozes with medieval charm and Mediterranean style, throw in hundreds of thousands of petals and then let creativity run wild. The result is the Temps de Flors, or Festival of Flowers, in Girona. Every year, this Spanish town scraps admission fees and lets the scent of roses fill the air. Queues thread around the cloisters, crowds fill the squares, while classical music drifts across the streets. Shops display tulip stickers and buttercup cakes, while poets use broken pianos and flower cascades to reflect the pain of a life cut short.

Whichever way you look at it, there’s something interesting to look at.

I travelled to Girona as a guest of Visit Costa Brava. All pics, words and thoughts (such as they are) are always mine…
