In 2017, the Ayuntamiento de Córdoba (council) decided to liven up the city’s autumn calendar with an event which would bring alegría (joy) to the streets.
Córdoba is synonymous with the season of spring and even the month of May is adopted by it, known affectionately as ‘El mayo córdobes‘.
This is a culturally rich season celebrating the arrival of Andalucía’s most pleasant weather where locals and tourists alike descend upon the Cata del Vino, the Cruces de mayo and the mother of all Córdobes festivals, the Feria de Nuestra Señora de la Salud.
However, its autumn had been lacking something. As the much awaited cooler weather draws in, there tended not to be much to look forward to until Christmas.
What better idea then to bring international artists, floral art installations, light and melodies to town?
Thus, Festival FLORA was conceived.
