Valencia travel42 Port of Call Guide

Valencia, Spain, located 190 mi/300 km east of Madrid, is famous for food and revelry. It's the home of paella and two festivals: Las Fallas, a weeklong fiesta in March that climaxes with the burning of hundreds of enormous papier-mache ninots (huge effigies), and La Tomatina, a festival in August that takes place in the nearby town of Bunol and revolves around revelers throwing tomatoes at one another.
