Spain is famous for the climate, the landscape, the passion of the people and the bright, bold colours of the plant life. The abundance of flowers that burst into life throughout Spain every year are celebrated in shows and events across the country.
Every May Girona celebrates the temps de flors, or festival of the flowers. What began fifty years ago as a small flower show where locals competed for the best blooms in the town has grown to a festival in which the whole area blooms. There is free admission to many of the parks and gardens for locals and visitors to explore and enjoy the festival, and areas which aren't usually open to the public throw open their doors and gates throughout the old quarter of the city.
A historical city, the event attracts a great many visitors to enjoy the historical buildings and traditional architecture juxtaposed by the flowing life and colour of the flowers. The event has grown in popularity and is now embraced by the entire city, and has a true local festival feel with that special Spanish flavour.
Andalucia is very famous for the flower festivals that change the city of Córdoba into a riot of flowers and scent throughout May. The 'battle of the flowers' parade opens the festivities and celebrates Spring, and the May Crosses festival commemorates Christ on the cross in this traditional area. The crosses, made of blooms, are paraded through Córdoba and flowers are thrown into the watching crowds in abundance. These events are followed by weeks of showcasing and celebration of the city's patio gardens - the Patio contests, sponsored by the city hall. The event has been held every May since 1918 and celebrates the passion and lifestyle of locals, and their architecture. Traditionally, due to the dry heat of Andalucia, homes have always been built with a central patio which include water features and stunning flower gardens, created to keep the home cool and give residents somewhere cool and shaded to shelter from the extreme heat.
Over time these patio areas became showpieces in many homes, and the complexity and hard work that created these incredible hidden gardens became a local passion. The natural curiosity about what neighbours did with their patio, and competitive nature of the locals, saw these patios being opened to the public for the month of May and everyone is invited inside to enjoy the gardens, both of private homes and of public buildings. Mosaics, water features and floral displays, including the famed local scented blooms of jasmine and orange blossom, make each patio garden a joy.
Carnations - particularly red carnations - are traditionally the national flower of Spain. Throughout the country people plant pots full of the beautiful flowers, and the meaning of the gift of carnations holds significance. Red carnations mean ""my heart aches for you"" and are a gesture of love. White carnations mean ""I am still available"" and are given by hopeful suitors to potential dates.
Another flower that is a national bloom is, of course, the pomegranate - a plant more famous abroad for the complex fruit with the jewelled seeds hidden within.
A Spanish flower that is popular across the world, creating a sea of colour in shaded, woodland areas, is the Spanish Bluebell, with blue, bell shaped heads that bob and dance in the breeze and grow in abundance.
As well as the famous patio gardens of Córdoba's residents there are some public buildings and monument patios that all visitors should take time to visit. The best examples are found across the city. Viana Palace is called the Patio Museum and has 12 patio gardens, some dating back to the 14th century. It is officially classified as an 'Historic Garden' and Córdoba residents and visitors alike recommend it to people new to the area.
Throughout the city there are religious buildings with patio gardens open to visitors, which are simply stunning. Santa Isabel de los Ángeles, The Encarnación, Jesus Crucificado, Las Capuchinas, Santa María, Santa Cruz, Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, San Pedro Real and Corpus Cristi are the most famous and popular.
