The flowers, with their colors and scents, are the undisputed protagonists of the Festival. Throughout the city you will find incredible compositions and installations. Many are concentrated in the area of the historic center and near the Cathedral. Beautiful floral installations will be present inside the Center Bonastruc ça Porta.

Our advice, however, is to let your instinct guide you and avoid any schematic program, because every corner of the city is able to give incredible views. Keep in mind that even the local population actively participates in the Temps de Flors; therefore, you can find beautiful displays even in private homes or even in shop windows!
