La Tomatina

Buñol is a city in a mountainous area of Valencia province. It has about 10000 people and is the biggest in the region "La Hoya". It is a beautiful city, but the most beautiful are its natural places on the outskirts of the city which are great for walking around. There is a big park, El Planell, where people usually go for a walk and play sports. Weather is typical Mediterrenean with mild winters (although snow occasionally falls) and hot summers.
