Dozens of usually private patios are thrown open to the public in a riot of gorgeous colour and celebration of spring.
The tradition dates back to 1921 with the town hall organizing a competition, along with music, dancing and wine.
Here are a selection of the best images from 2018 when the festival takes place between the 1st and 13th of May.
