Girona Flower Festival 2022.

Without a doubt, one of the dates not to be missed in Girona is the traditional annual flower festival Temps de Flors Girona. This once bright and enchanting event has always brought a special charm and flavor to the narrow streets of medieval Girona. With a fair amount of regret, we are forced to state that from year to year the bar for the quantity and quality of flower arrangements that decorate iconic buildings, houses, museums, courtyards and gardens of Girona during the days of this holiday is gradually decreasing. This year, the level of satisfaction with the festival has reached its lowest point – and this despite the fact that the total number of flower arrangements exceeds last year (according to the organizers, 106 against 87 in 2021).
We really do hope that this not quite pleasant trend will change in the future. Nevertheless, there was something to admire, let’s look and evaluate together!

On the first photo – Composition 43 “Sant Narcís” on the stairs of the Basílica de Sant Feliu church. It uses the famous legend of St. Narcissus, the patron saint of Girona, and his army of flies, which repeatedly drove foreign invaders from the walls of the city.

Composition 8 “Giraffes” is one of the most popular places for photographing among festival guests.
