Geography

The coast along the Gulf of Valencia is typically plain and sandy. Coastal marshes (chiefly the Albuferamarker) are the distinctive feature in this region. The area is perhaps the finest example of Mediterranean climate in Spain.

Associated to the low and fertile lands, both rice and, especially, trees of the citrus genus such as orange and lemon are the dominant crops.

The coast along the Gulf of Valencia is densely populated, with one of the highest population densities in Spain.
