The Fiestas of Spain : La Tomatina in Buņol, Valencia

Like gangs of adolescents anywhere, it ...

There is no patron saint of tomatoes or miraculous explanation of a tomato ritual, whereby locals beseech the gods for good weather and fortune for next year's harvest. It so happens the tradition was born way back in 1945 when some l...
