Buñol, a small town 39km’s west of the city of Valencia hosts plays host to La Tomatina. Considered by many to be the largest food fight festival in the world.
20,000 people make the pilgrimage on the ancient town of Buñol at the end of August every year to party and through tomatoes at each other. A truck carrying 5 tonnes of tomatoes rocks up in the centre of town and it’s every man and women for themselves in one incredible food fight that you will remember forever.
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 a more old-fashioned vibe with many excellent restaurants, stylish bars and boutiques.
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 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.
