Book Now for La Tomatina 2021!

Join PP Travel in Spain on 25th of August 2021 for one of the most unbelievable and memorable experiences of your life. La Tomatina is without doubt the wildest and craziest festival in Europe - it is virtually impossible to describe the absolute carnage that follows in the tiny town of Buñol when the tomato lorries arrive - it is something you have to get into the middle of to experience!

Restricted access and ticket to La Tomatina: Entry ticket to Bunol: All PP tours include the mandatory entrance ticket to the tomato fight. First introduced in 2013 the restricted access and reduced numbers have made the whole event so much better, less crowded and more fun. As an officially recognised travel operator to Bunol, PP Travel will provide entry wristbands to all passengers.

Let the experienced team at PP Travel lead you right into the heart of the action to ensure you get the most of this short, but wild experience. Our experienced crew will assist in having you completely prepared for the battle - and of most importance - will lead you "past the ham pole" right into the thick of it. While tens of thousands of revellers decent upon Buñol annually, a huge number not informed or not led properly, miss out on the action altogether and hardly see a tomato.

That is why choosing who you travel with to La Tomatina is of such importance. The actual awesome but crazy fight lasts just an hour and without proper preparation you can miss it all. PP Travel is one of the largest operators to the tomato fight, with around 1000 people joining us each year and we ensure all are given the opportunity to experience Tomatina to the max.

These awesome buildings, built in a former riverbed, are situated ideally halfway between the old town centre and Valencia's chic America's Cup port.

Choose either our 3* hotel option or our superior 4* packages. All include transfers to our superb welcome/pre Tomatina party at the fabulous L'Umbracle Terrace nightclub, right in the heart of the City of Sciences and Arts.



On the day of the fight you are transferred to Buñol in executive coaches for La Tomatina and led into the middle of the battle. Post Tomatina join us at the official after party. PP Travel is the only tour operator that includes free entry to the after party (up to 10pm) - it is almost as big as La Tomatina itself. We also include breakfast daily, free wi-fi and Souvenir La Tomatina T-Shirt.

Put your trust in the PP La Tomatina team. We will ensure you get right amongst it all and get the most out of this crazy, amazing experience.

The Tomato Fight
On the Wednesday morning large dump trucks haul the massive bounty of tomatoes into the centre of Buñol, Plaza del Pueblo. What is amazing is how small this area is. The centre of the action is in front of the town hall in a narrow, typically Spanish street. Tens of thousands of revellers pack into the area from dawn and are entertained before the arrival of tomatoes by the "clamour of the ham pole". A large ham is placed on top of the greased pole and scores form human ladders to try to claim it. Like the battle that follows, it is carnage and it is has been years since anyone has grabbed the elusive ham.

The first trucks appear late morning and squeeze their way down the narrow one-way street into the packed crowd. Local farmers sit on top of the trucks and fire tomatoes (including green ones) at the defenceless crowd. The signal for the beginning of the fight is firing of the cannon and the chaos begins around 11am. From then on it is a battle that is generally every man and women for themselves. It is not uncommon for it to develop into girls vs guys. Several times throughout the hour trucks come through to re-stock the street with more and more loads of tomatoes.

Lasting only for an hour, the fighting ends and the cannon is fired once more. By this time you are seriously weary and glad it is over. The cleaning process involves the use of fire trucks to spray down the streets, with water provided from a Roman aqueduct. The celebration concludes with the festival of the town's patron saints, San Luis Bertràn, and the Virgin Mary.

PP Travel passengers then spend a few hours recovering and trying to clean themselves before being transferred back to Valencia mid-afternoon to get a proper wash down at our 3 and 4 star hotels.

There are, in fact, very few rules at La Tomatina, but these are outlined by the city council:
  • It is compulsory to squash the tomatoes before throwing them.
  • This is a tomato lover's festival so strictly no other projectiles are allowed.
  • Be careful of the lorries going through the village.
  • You must not rip t-shirts.
  • Tomatoes must stop being thrown once the second incendiary device is fired.

After the tomato fight is over shopkeepers take down their tarpaulins and everyone chips in to hose down the town and each other and before long the town is transformed back to its former self.

Despite all the absolute carnage, each year this unbelievable fiesta and event occurs without major incident.

Please Note: The pre party and Official After Party are both held within licensed venues and entry is restricted to people 18 years of age and over. This is due to Spanish licensing laws. Sorry, but people under 18 years of age will not gain entry to these events.
The City Council of Bunol presently does not put an age restriction of those who can participate in the tomato fight. However you should note the tomato fight can get wild with thousands randomly throwing tomatoes in all directions. There are no real vantage points within the tomato fight where you can just stand back and take in what is going on simply as a spectator.
