Bunol lies 38 kilometres inland from the city of Valencia situated on the Buñol river, surrounded by mountain ranges and agriculture.
There is archaeological evidence that suggests there has been civilisation in Bunol going back 50,000 years. The town is also home to the Castle of Bunol, which is a fascinating historical site in its own right.
The small town is a working town of approximately 9,000 residents, involved in industry and agriculture; producing carob, almonds, citrus fruits, olives, grapes and tomatoes.
In late August the town is descended upon each year by over 30,000 people for the Tomatina Festival where tomatoes are gleefully thrown at one another.
Aside from the town and castle, the beautiful mountain ranges and landscape that surround Bunol make it especially worth a visit. If you can make it during August for the Tomatina Festival, then you can expect a unique experience never to be forgotten!
