Festivals in Spain
La Tomatina Festival is held in the town of Buñol, near Valencia in eastern Spain. Thousands of people gather in the town on the last Wednesday of August every year to hurl tons of tomatoes at each other. Participants from all over the world throw tomatoes and enjoy the world’s messiest food fight. La Tomatina has been held in Bunol since 1945. The Tomatina festival in Spain ranks high on many travel bucket lists. This week-long festival also features parades, music, fireworks, and cooking contests. It begins around 11 am and the tomato fight begins after someone from the crowd is able to bring down a piece of ham from a pole. Once more than 100 metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes have been thrown, the debris on the streets is cleaned by fire trucks. The town council of Bunol limits the number of participants and tickets are priced at EUR 10 per person. Tickets can be reserved online from the town council website.
Benicassim Festival or Festival Internacional de Benicàssim (FIB) is the ultimate summer music festival held in the Valencian town of Benicàssim.

FIB is an annual music festival held in July, from the morning of the second Monday to Thursday afternoon. This music festival mainly focuses on artists from Pop, Dance, Indie Rock, and Electronica genres. It also showcases short films, fashion shows, and cultural events in Benicassim. To sum it up, Benicassim Festival in Spain is among the top summer festivals in Europe.

Trip to EuropeThanks a lot to Duniya Safari (in particular, Sidhhanth and Rituparno) for arranging our Spain trip. We really liked the provided hotels and the best part was the location which was just 5-7 mins walking from the station. This made our journey quite comforting. The cabs arranged was airport pickup/ drop were well on time and we dint face an issue there. Special morning reminders of our day-wise itinerary, by Siddhanth were quite helpful :). What could have been done better- the time slots which were taken for Royal Palace / Park Guille should have included a buffer time. If the slots would have been booked keeping into consideration of the time we will be landing, checking into the hotel and then reaching to the required destination, it would have been an ideal trip. But, needless to say we had an overall a very pleasant experience. Thanks again to the team for planning this trip. Best regards, Radhika Hotel Ayre was the best out of all :)
Trip to EuropeHad a great 10 day trip to Spain and Portugal. Timely on-trip support provided by Mr. Krishna. Overall trip plan was excellent and we had a memorable time.
Trip to EuropeWe travelled to Spain on 24th April 2018. It was 11 day trip and feedback is as follows: Trip was wonderful. Great pricing and value for money By Suntravs and Travel Triangle. Few things that can be improved upon are as follows: Issue was with VISA documentation. There were more documents needed by SPAIN VFS office than were told to us. Thankfully our travel date was far so we got re appointment with VFS with correct set of documents. VISA was then smooth. All the hotels were nice but location became an issue as our trip proceeded. Barcelona was at city centre. Valencia hotel was walkable from city centre. Seville was slightly far from city centre. Madrid was on outskirts of city which made us miss our sight seeing tour on first day and for second day as well we had to take taxi as taking Bus/Metro was not an option to reach on time. A sync up with drivers one day prior is the need of the hour, just 1 hour before the journey can be very unnerving especially if the mode of transport is train or bus and mobile data connection may or may not work in the middle of the journey. About Hotels: 1. Barcelona: Axel Hotel a. Pros: i. Great location. Very near to city Centre and from tour starting point. ii. Had tea bags and hot water provisions in room. iii. Neat and clean rooms. b. Cons: i. A gay friendly hotel, which might not be liked by Indian families. Though it’s a common culture in Spain. We absolutely had no problems. 2. Valencia: Senator Parque a. Pros: i. 20 mins walk from city Centre, which was manageable ii. Big hotel and very friendly staff. They even helped us with our locked suitcase :) iii. Neat and clean rooms. b. Cons: i. None 3. Seville : Al Andulacia a. Pros: i. Huge hotel with probably the best and biggest buffet spread. ii. Neat and clean rooms. iii. In front of Betis football stadium, in case you are a football fan. iv. Bus stop near by. v. Staff was courteous enough to shift us to bigger room since our room’s AC temperature was not up to our likes. b. Cons: i. Far off from city center from where the sight-seeing tours start. ii. No hot water and no provision for tea. Indians like us need tea in mornings iii. Few rooms have fixed AC temperatures. You cannot increase or decrease the temperature beyond certain number. 4. Madrid : Norte Occidental a. Pros: i. Bus stop right in front of hotel. ii. Metro station at 10 mins walk. iii. Neat and clean rooms. iv. A multiplex nearby for movie buffs and couple of places to eat. b. Cons: i. Very far off from city. It takes 45 mins by Metro (you have to change 2 metro to reach Sol, the city centre) and 1 hour by bus. ii. No hot water and no provision for tea. Indians like us need tea in mornings . iii. Breakfast buffet spread was not that great as compared to all the hotels where we stayed earlier.
Trip to EuropeThank you Duniya Safari for arranging such a memorable trip to Spain & Rome for me and Rohesh. You guys provided all necessary requirements and were always ready to help and suggest. Thanks a lot to Srijan and Siddhanth for making this vacation happen for us.
Trip to EuropeWe took our package to Spain and Paris from Duniya Safari and the experience was great. Starting from visa assistance till the last day of our trip they were full supportive and helpful. Prasurya was available 24*7 and she respond to my every query in quick time. Hotels provided was best and we faced no difficulties in our trip. Thanks to Prasurya and the rest of the team for making our trip memorable. I will definitely recommend this to my friends and colleagues.
Trip to EuropeWe had a great trip to Spain. Everything was very well planned. Did not face even a single glitch throughout our journey. For any assistance, our travel agent was always available. Made the best memories of our lives. Thanks to travel triangle and travelmasterz.
Trip to EuropeMr Jatan Gupta, our Travel Triangle coordinator and Mr Mayank Gupta from HolidayArte made sure that all arrangements were good and as per expectations. We had a wonderful time in Spain. The visits to Al-Ahmbra, Medinat Al Zahra. Seville Alcazar and Cardoba Mosque. Walking tours in Toledo-Day and Granada. The food was excellent especially the Tapas and seafood. People watching in the Puertas and squares of Madrid and Barcelona. And of course the beaches of Nerja.
Trip to EuropeSaurabh Mehta u are amazing! This is what I would start with! He was excellent and bang on with the bookings and arrangements. It could not have been better! All hotels were excellent ! Planning of the itinerary was perfect! We got enough time to see things unlike regular tours! Customised perfectly is what I would say! Vacation Madcaps is highly recommended for travel lovers who want to explore the world! The trip is planned as per your convenience and needs. We had a lovely time with some great memories experiences and adventures! The best memories were Marrakesh trip to the Imblil valley! Perfect Blend of trekking and adventure! Second one was Skydive at Spain...lastly the trip to Sagrada Familia and Camp Nou FCB stadium in Barcelona.
Trip to EuropeWe recently travelled to Spain and the trip was very well planned by Siddhant. Though unfortunately, we faced a difficulty when our bag was stolen in Barcelona, but Siddhant was a constant help and provided best possible solutions to the situation we were in. Areas of improvement : 1. Flight meals for vegetarians should be pre-booked. 2. There should be a detailed discussion about intercity travel options because longer travels on a holiday become quite a hassle. Overall, it was a great trip. I would recommend Duniya Safari to my friends as well.
Trip to EuropeDear Siddanth It was a great support from you and gurjeet during the journey right from Bangalore travel to Spain covering seville, Madrid, valencia and Barcelona. But there were few mistakes like mentioning vegetarian food for my wife in emirates flight, which was missing and you weren't reachable to contact when accessing the taxi return from hotel to airport. The rest you were had a excellent support .

FAQ's of Spain
Read on to find out why our customers love us!
Spain actually falls in three different climate zones. The summers are very hot, whereas the winters are chilly and rainy.
The best time to visit Spain is during the months of April, May, June, September and October, when the weather is pleasant.
The Tomatina Tomato Fight and the San Fermín running of the bulls in Pamplona are probably the best and most popular festivals of Spain.
If in Venice, the paella Valenciana should not be given a miss. It can be prepared with meat or vegetables, as per your choice.
