Temps de Flors

Temps de Flors is a flower festival taking place Sunday 19th May in Girona. This is a walled medieval city located between Barcelona and Costa Brava. It’s a beautiful city of culture with one of the best preserved Jewish Quarters in the world. Similarly, the old city centre is delightfully sustained and in a similar condition to when the Jewish people lived there over 500 years ago.

Temps de Flors, a colourful explosion

Temps de Flors started as a small flower show over 50 years ago. It has developed into one of the biggest and brightest flower installations across Girona. The medieval city becomes a canvas for thousands of professional and amateur people to express their love for art, culture and flowers.

The festival usually coincides with the A Capella festival which transforms the streets of Girona into an atmosphere of aromas and music. The festival not only has become a display of flowers and music for the community but a space for performers, artists, chefs and photographers to express their love of culture.

Catalan Gastronomy in Girona

Being so passionate about food at Tast, we have a special place in our heart for Girona. Our own Chef Paco Pérez has his restaurant Miramar in Llançà. Girona is a key destination for gastronomy lovers, as it is home for may top restaurants.

One of the best restaurants  El Celler de Can Roca, who we have a strong connection with. Our head chef, Miquel Villacrosa, worked there for 5 summers. We asked Miquel,

“Miquel, could you describe El Celler de Can Roca in 5 words?”

Miquel,  smiling and closing his eyes: “Passion, creativity, perfection, delicacy and fellowship”.
