Tomatina’s rules

origen de la tomatina
Tomatina’s Rules:
  • Do not enter bottles or hard objects because you can cause an accident or damages to your battle’s fellows.
  • Do not tear or throw neither your T-shirts nor others T-shirts.
  • Squash the tomatoes before throwing them, the hit will be less painful.
  • Keep a safe distance of the lorries.
  • Stop throwing tomatoes as soon as you hear the shot of the second warning firework.
  • Follow the security staff directions.
  • Wear old clothes or clothes that you are not going to wear later. White t-shirt: perfect combination.
  • Wear shoes with a decent grip that can be thrown later but kept on your feet. Avoid using flip-flops; you can lose them in the tomato fight.
  • Goggles are the key accessory. Your eyes can be sore because of the tomato acid. But it is a pleasure to see how this tomato acid can clean your skin.
  • If you want to take pictures, use waterproof cameras or just use a protective case.
  • If you are not from Buñol and you want to stay overnight, do not forget to look for accommodation in advance.
  • Come early! The access to the urban area by car will be closed at 07.00 so you will be just allowed to enter by walking.
  • Follow the security directions and keep a safe distance of the lorries.
  • Do not miss the “palo-jabón’’. A soap-covered pole with a Spanish ham on the top. The person who climbs to the top and gets the ham…wins the ham!
  • And last but not least, enjoy to the max. It is a pleasure to release adrenaline throwing tomatoes in all directions during an hour.
