Girona Flower Festival
Girona is a beautiful city located one hour from Barcelona. It is a very atypical city in the North East of Spain, famous for its medieval architecture, its old quarter surrounded by walls (Barri well) and the Roman ruins of the fortress of the Força Vella. It is also very famous since some episodes of Games of Thrones were shot in this place. The popularity has only increased since the last season of Games of Thrones was released. The enthusiasm around Games of Thrones makes the city more and more touristic. This week of May is the best time to visit Girona because it is the annual festival of flowers. At this festival, the streets and every corner of the city are decorated with flowers. This is an opportunity to admire the city in all its glory and also to discover hidden courtyards and gardens that are only open to the public for this annual flower festival.

Indeed, The Barcelona Grand Prize will take place at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, 20km North East of the center of Barcelona. The event is located in the Small Town of Montmelo. We recommend that you wear sun protection and headphones or noise-canceling plugs because the noise from the motors can be loud. Besides, if you reserve places in the lawn area, you can take a parasol to not only protect you from the sun but also helps to keep your spot because the lawn area is free placement for visitors. It is the rendezvous and one of the most popular tours. It was on this circuit that Michael Schumacher won his first victory in 1996 with his Ferrari or that Lewis Hamilton won the trophy against Sebastien Vettel in a captivating race.
