La Tomatina Fiesta 2013 Witness 30,000 people throwing tomatoes at each other. It’s the ultimate Civil War. No guns. Just Tomatoes. Welcome to the Tomatina.

When & Where 11am usually on the last Wednesday in August in the village Bunol in the region of Valencia in Spain.

Why The tomato fight is the peak of the 11-day festival honouring the town's patron saints - Luis Bertran & Mare de Déu dels Desemparats. The tomato fight has taken place in Buñol since 1944. It’s origins are clouded with legends.

Tomatina accommodation in Bunol

Where to stay Bunol is a small Spanish town with little accommodation. Check out quality hotels and cheap accommodation in Valencia here.

Equipment for the Tomatina I would recommend wearing a snorkelling mask for best visibility, not goggles as they have more limited vision. If you want to take pictures get a waterproof camera, as everything in sight will be covered with tomatoes.

Getting There Book a flight into Valencia Airport here then take a bus or train to Bunol.
