Valencia

Valencia is a charming old city and the capital of the Old Kingdom of Valencia province of Spain that is well worth a visit. It is located on the Mediterranean Sea approximately 4 hours to the south of Barcelona and 3 hours to the east of Madrid. Valencia is famous for its Fallas festival in March, for being the birthplace of paella, for hosting the 2007 America´s Cup, and for the massive architectural project by Santiago Calatrava called The City of Arts and Sciences.
There used to be a river running through the center of the city but the river was redirected a while back and replaced by a beautiful park. This is a very nice place to while away any free time you have in the city on a sunny day.

Full Day Tour to La Tomatina - World's Largest Tomato Fight 8 hours

Full Day Tour to La Tomatina - World's Largest Tomato Fight

For a fantastic day of crazy fun and Spanish culture, you can't go past the annual La Tomatina festival in Bunol. Held on the last Wednesday of August, people come from the surrounding villages (and around the world) to be involved in the messy day of festivities.

The big day is the culmination of a week long festival which begins with a large soapy pole being erected in the middle of town. On the top is a leg of ham, the prize for anyone brave enough, or silly enough to try and scale the pole.

At 11:00am a shot is fired and the chaos begins. Trucks loaded with tomatoes roll in and those onboard hurl tomatoes at the crowd to start the battle. Once the vehicle stops and the crowds descend upon it, everything turns tomato red within seconds.

On the sounding of the second shot, the fight comes to an end and the masses head off to be hosed down and then take the festivities into the afternoon.
