This town is the setting for one of Spain’s most unusual fiestas.
Buñol is just 39 kilometres from the city of Valencia, in a mountainous area close to the coast. In the surrounding region you will have the chance to enjoy beautiful nature areas such as Alta Cave, the Juanes River and Turche Cave, where there is a 60 metre waterfall at rainy times of year. The town also has many parks and gardens. Other points of interest are its 13th century castle, the old town around it and El Salvador Church, which also houses the town’s Archaeological Museum. Nevertheless, it is in August when thousands of people head for Buñol to take part in its famous “Tomatina”. This amusing fiesta involves everyone hurling tomatoes at each other and has the International Tourist Interest designation.
