FLORA, Cordoba International Flower Festival
Cordoba is the protagonist of a unique event that brings together national and international artists who create spectacular floral installations in some of the city's most outstanding courtyards.
What does the festival consist of?
At the Cordoba Flower Festival, several internationally renowned floral artists have the opportunity to create a beautiful work in some of the courtyards located in representative buildings in Cordoba, which are on loan from Cordoba City Council.
This is the main activity, however, during the days of the event, all those present will be able to enjoy other cultural activities that complement this festival.
These courtyards offer a pleasant tour and can be visited free of charge, and are the basis of a competition, in which the winners will receive a cash prize from FLORA.
The artists are in charge of reinterpreting each of the patios from different aspects, such as cultural factors and the context, which allows all visitors to see Cordoba's heritage in all its splendour, and which has managed to project this city around the world.
Origin of FLORA, the Cordoba Flower Festival
This beautiful festival was born just a few years ago, when Jiangping Fu, the president of the hotel chain Zizai Hotels and the City Council of Cordoba decided to organise a competition in which all the attendees could enjoy a delicate combination of culture and contemporary art of floral installations.
What motivated Fu to be part of FLORA was the stunning beauty of Cordoba's patios on a visit he made in 2015, and his goal is for Cordoba to be recognised both in Spain and in China.
