Flora is a competition in which ephemeral floral installations are combined in a setting such as the courtyards of Cordoba. The International Flower Festival sees the event as an unprecedented cultural exchange. After the success of Flora 2017, 2018 and 2019, a large number of visitors was expected this year.
After a break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Flora will be held this year in October, with the courtyard of the orange trees as a privileged setting.
What is the contest about
Using the typical Cordoba courtyards that the city council cedes for this edition, real works of art composed of floral compositions are installed in them. Six are the professional artists who show up for the event each year, in which a common theme has been chosen for each of the contestants.
When is celebrated
The 2021 edition will be held from 11 to 21 October. This year, in order to “revitalise” this competition, the Patio de los Naranjos will be one of the chosen venues for a floral presentation. As on other occasions, the public will be able to judge each of the works, leading to one of the prizes. During the days of the event, the patios can be visited free of charge.
