La Tomatina and nature in Valencia

In keeping with the tomato theme… it’s not too late to get a ticket to Valencia in time for the world famous La Tomatina tomato fight!

Started in 1945 and held every year on the last Wednesday in August in the town of Buñol, Valencia, this festival is essentially a massive food fight, featuring thousands of pounds of ripe tomatoes.

While in Valencia, stay off the beaten track and try a different kind of route. The Vía Verde de Ojos Negros, or ‘Greenway of the Dark Eyes’, is a wonderful walking and biking path that weaves between the Community of Valencia and Aragón.

Tradition, history, nature, gastronomy and fun… the perfect way to end the summer!
