Route through the Fields of Sunflowers in Spain. Towns where you can visit them

Nature has so much to teach us.

Through the years, and through the seasons, I have come to realize that each season has its charm and that each place exhibits that charm in its own way. Many times, without looking for it, I have stayed stunned with a particular plantation or with a town that stands out even more in autumn. Lately I try to observe a little more those details.

Let's talk about the sunflowers for example. They have their full ripening stage in August, that is to say, when they have a more intense color, they are harvested in October, the pipes are so delicious. Well . the fields of sunflowers are located in much of the country. What do you think if we take a quick route through one of the regions where you can appreciate this precious work of nature that with the help of the symmetry of the human being, makes a perfect harmony of color, order and perfection.

Curiosities about sunflowers

Before we begin, let's learn a little more about this impressive flower.

  • These wonderful flowers are managed to make intelligent use of light. They have a photosensor that helps them know the quality of it.
  • In his stage of maturity sunflowers they stop turning until stop completely.
  • El heliotropism is what they are called movements that the sunflower makes in search of the Sun.

Where to see sunflower fields in Spain

Towns in Catalonia where to see sunflowers

Catalonia is where I currently live and I have set to work looking for where to find sunflower fields near home. Here you have what I found, with photos from the last few days.

  • Jafre

Town very close to L'Escala and L'Estartit so you can take the opportunity to go for a dip in a cove.

  • Yards

It is the village before reaching Jafre. I give you references because sunflowers do not ripen at the same time so it can happen to you that you see some field already withered and another in full swing in 1 kilometer.

These photos look good even when you're a bit clumsy with the camera 😆 And with a Lightroom effect they look perfect.
  • Surroundings of Figueres

On the outskirts of this city you can find some Super cool fields and very photographable. Although in this town there are smaller fields, I think it is worth going if you are close.

Photos from last year.. If there are any photographers reading this, I'm sorry, they do what they can. We are not very good photographers but we try to leave a decent memory of each trip.

Other places in Spain where you can enjoy the sunflower fields

The first time I saw these fields (so big and so impressive) was going on vacation to León (where my family lives) and you can imagine how I was when I passed through kilometer and kilometers of yellow mantle. 🤩 It is a very nice experience when you've never seen anything like it.

Here I leave the sites where we made a short stop plus others people of Lion where also you can find fields of sunflowers.


  • the outskirts of the city of León
  • Sahagún


In the Province of Burgos you have hundreds of sunflower fields. You don't even have to turn off the road to see them. Warning: they are huge.

Here at the town of Pancorbo, right next to the AP-1 Highway you can see this wonderful work of art.

There are also fields of sunflowers in:

  • bureba

Town north of Burgos, famous precisely for its huge fields of sunflowers.
