Temps des Fleurs, or ‘Flower Time’ as Girona opens its doors, revealing
hidden courtyards and gardens, and giving locals and visitors free
access to museums and private buildings. The streets are filled with
sculptural installations, and flowers decorate windows and apartment
entrances. Modern floral expressions bloom within historical landmarks,
and the many churches that dominate the heart of the oldest quarters.
Jewish, Arab, Roman, Baroque, Catholic, Saracen, Spanish and Catalan
influences merge, as cisterns and roof terraces, underground caverns
and towers, bars and offices alike, invite visitors to enter and discover
their many treasures.
