Buñol, a small town 39km’s west of the city of Valencia hosts plays host to La Tomatina 2019. Considered by many to be the largest food fight festival in the world.

Explore Valencia, Spain’s third biggest city that offers a great combination of city, sun and beach and plenty of cool things to do! The city center is walkable but hiring a bike offers the opportunity to explore the lesser known areas and beautiful beaches. The Carmen neighbourhood has street art and many off-beat boutiques, cafés and bars with an underground vibe. Russafa has old-fashioned street life combined with some of the city’s most hyped up restaurants, stylish bars and funky boutiques.
Try and catch a football match at the Mestalla Stadium, the home stadium of top Spanish league team FC Valencia since 1923. FC Valencia has some of the most ardent fans in La Liga, and the Mestalla stadium boasts the steepest stands of any of Europe’s major grounds. The result? Sheer intimidation for visiting teams – and perhaps the most electric place to watch a match in Spain.
Paella is probably Spain’s most well-known dish. Everything that goes into it is fresh and sourced locally, from the rice grown around Valencia to even the saffron that flavours the rice. Go off the beaten track and go to restaurants full of Valencians. There are plenty around Malvarrosa which is worth a visit for its fine sandy beach with a large promenade as well.
Come to meander between the stalls and try a few tapas at the Mercat Colón, a glittering, century-old market of glass and iron. For a less gourmet experience head to the Mercat Central in the old town for a proper market with fresh produce.
There are a few Airbnb’s in Buñol and the surrounding villages and loads of options 30 minutes drive away in Valencia. To can find everything from hotels to apartments, guest houses and Airbnb’s. Head to the map below for the best accommodation deals during the festival.
