The Region of Valencia has a total area of 23,255 km2 and a profoundly Mediterranean landscape with vast coastal plains alternating with striking mountainous areas, in addition to 632 km of coastline so visitors can enjoy the sea and the good climate all year round. It has a population of over 5,000,000 inhabitants, and boasts an age-old culture which includes the celebration of numerous popular fiestas in all its towns and villages; there are major tourist resorts along its coastline, and it has several large cities –foremost of which is Valencia– with a full range of services, as well as sleepy villages in the interior. From north to south, the Region of Valencia comprises the provinces of Castellón, Valencia and Alicante. These are known and promoted in the tourist industry by their four larger designations: Costa Blanca, Benidorm, València Terra i Mar and Castellón Costa Azahar.
