Town of Buñol near Valencia is a yearly battlefield of the traditional “tomato war”, better known as La Tomatina. It is an event that has become one of the symbols of Spain and dates back to 1945. Participants from all over the world are rolling in epic 140 tons of tomatoes, throwing them at each other, the more the better.

In the past two years, there have been some changes and the entrance is no more free, but nonetheless totally worth it. All in all, La Tomatina is probably the most favorite festival in the whole Spain, so if you're planning on visiting Valencia it's a must-visit.
