What is La Vall d’Albaida?
It is a natural and historical region in the Comunidad Valenciana. It borders geographically with important regions such as “La Costera” and “La Safor” in Valencia province, and “L’Alcoià”, “El Comtat” and “l’Alt Vinalopó” in Alicante province.
The weather in La Vall is Mediterranean.
La Vall d’Albaida is formed by thirty-four towns. The region has a population of more than 85,000, and Ontinyent, which has a population of more than 33,000 is the main city.
It is one of the regions more industrialized, with a very important textile tradition, even though it has also a very important tradition of farming activities. For the last years the tertiary sector is growing very fast.
Regarding the communications, the entrance to the region via north is through the A-7 that connects with the CV-60 which later becomes highway until arriving close to Gandía. The old N-340 goes through Aielo de Malferit, Ontinyent, Agullent and Benissoda, joining againt to the A-7 on its way to Alcoy. From the CV-40 departs the CV-60, which brings us closer to Montixelvo and later to the region of La Safor.
An extensive road network connects the whole La Vall d’Albaida. The N-340 is parallel to the CV-40 and the CV-60, going through towns as Bellús, Guadasséquies, Alfarrasí, Montaverner, El Palomar, Albaida and, later, Alcoy. The Valencia-Alcoy rail network has stations in the whole region, being the most occidental the one in Ontinyent. The bus lines of Valencia-Villena and Valencia-Alcoy go through practically all the towns in the region.
Next to the coastline we find the N-332 and the AP-7, which go through all the Mediterranean coast.
You can really enjoy your visit as this region has a very rich gastronomic, natural, artistic and cultural offer.
