Departure Valencia Tomatina

The rules

The Rules of La Tomatina Festival If you want to keep having a funny Tomatina Festival, you must respect these rules:

  • Do not enter bottles or hard objects because you can cause an accident or damages to your battle’s fellows.
  • Do not tear or throw your T-shirts nor others T-shirts.
  • Squash the tomatoes before throwing them, the hit will be less painful.
  • Keep a safe distance of the lorries.
  • Stop to throw tomatoes when you hear the shot of the second warning firework.
  • Follow the security staff directions.

  • Tips

    You will always have fun in La Tomatina Festival, but if you want to have an indelible memory, you have to take the following tips into account:
    • Wear old clothes or clothes that you are not going to wear later. If so, ready to throw them away. White t-shirt: perfect combination.
    • Wear shoes with a decent grip so that you can throw them out later, just keep them on your feet. Avoid using flip-flops; you can lose them in the tomato fight.
    • The goggles can be your best friend. Your eyes can be sore because of the tomato acid. But it is a pleasure to see how this tomato acid can clean your skin. Tomato exfoliation!
    • If you want to take pictures, use waterproof cameras or just use a protective case.
    • If you are not from Buñol and you want to stay overnight, do not forget to look for accommodation in advance.
    • Come early! The access to the urban area by car will be closed at 07.00. If you want to access, keep walking.
    • Follow the security directions and keep a safe distance of the lorries.
    • Do not miss the palo-jabón. A soap-covered pole with a Spanish prosciutto on the top. The person who climbs to the top and get the prosciutto…win the prosciutto!
    • And last but not least, enjoy to the max. It is a pleasure to release adrenaline throwing tomatoes in all directions during an hour.

Buñol is a town of contrasts. Pioneer of the industrialization of the Valencian Community, the municipality has a large number of attractive urban aspects which surrounds its castle, which is properly preserved.

Just some kilometres from the town centre, Buñol has a wide range of natural areas in which the water is the common part. There are walking, climbing and bicycle routes around the mountain for those who love the nature. Surrounded by mountains, the Mediterranean forest is common.

Walking through the streets is a combination of history and modernity, where urban parks, fountains and music are always present. The music is a present element in Buñol, with two of the most national and international awarded music bands. There are also different cultural events that make Buñol a continuous dynamic municipality.
