La Tomatina de Buñol.

Más de 20.000 personas lanzándose tomates entre sí y las calles teñidas de un rojo ácido.

Do not hesitate to go sometime in your life, it is a unique experience. Since the award and privatization process, the party is not so crowded and your visit is much more advisable. In addition, it is a day of coexistence with paellas, music and children's activities.


Las fallas de Valencia.

Las fallas no son solo monumentos: Son castillos de fuegos artificiales, buñuelos con chocolate, ofrendas, bandas de música, la Mascletà diaria y muchas otras actividades. En fin, que si no te gustan las fallas no te quedará otra que quedarte en casa ya que el olor a pólvora y el “sentiment” de la fiesta reina por doquier en marzo.
