Some of the artists did a great job to integrate the flowers into different contexts, and using additional objects to convey sense and harmony to their allotted spaces throughout Girona.

Ruins of the first hospital in Girona during Temps de Flors
During Temps de Flors 2016 it was possible to access for the last time the excavations in this archaeological site, which was part of the Roman Gerunda, and is located next to the Sant Nicolau chapel, near the monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants. Some parts date from the 2nd century, and it is believed it was used in medieval times as the first hospital in the city. Now it is a spa.
