Infographic: La Tomatina

| August 26, 2012

Ladies and gents, chicos y chicas, prepare yourselves for a true blast of the bizarre at ‘La Tomatina’ festival. The aim is to throw as many tomatoes as humanly possible, while dodging some of the 150,000-odd that propel across the streets of Buñol, Spain. This post will provide you with all the fruity goodness that comes with it – and yes, tomatoes are a fruit! Let’s get picking.

About the Author ()

Ben grew up on the Wirral in the UK, spending many exotic summers in North Wales. After 6 years of further education he was disheartened not to beat Van Wilder’s score, yet delighted that he spent much of that time planning and taking trips abroad. Upon graduation he superman dived through a few advertising agencies and landed in the quiet Mews of Warwick Avenue. He loves a good bowl (the sport), the word “ambrosia” and walking through ancient Tuscan towns at dusk.
