La noche de los delfines

The night of the dolphins WHO, WHAT AND HOW. Nights at the Oceanogràfic have become a summer classic in Valencia.

The Oceanogràfic building is located at the end of the architectural complex of the City of Arts and Sciences. WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT.

Tickets are €25 for adults and €19.50 for children.

Festivities
30th August
The great tomato war

WHO, WHAT AND HOW. La Tomatina is the largest tomato fight in the world, and takes place in the Valencian town of Buñol every year, coinciding with the town's local festivities. It's an event that brings together people from all corners of the world, where the participants pelt each other with up to 100 tons of tomatoes, in a spirit of festivity and celebration. WHEN AND WHERE. The fight always begins on the last Wednesday in August in the town square of Buñol, but it spreads out through the whole town. In 2017 it will be on 30 August. WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT. Because it was declared a Festival of International Tourist Interest by the General Secretariat for Tourism in 2002, and because it's much more than that: a continuous celebration before and after the battle, where wine is drunk and paella is eaten until the time when the tomatoes start to fly, temporarily staining the streets of the town red.
