L’Alcúdia is a small town in the Valencia region, southeastern Spain. The territory is flat, alluvial and without important heights; the climate is the Mediterranean.
L’Alcúdia was founded by Catalan squire Peire de Montagut in the 13th century. Its name came from the Arabic word al-Kudiya which means “the alter”. In 1433, L’Alcúdia was granted town privileges by King Alfonso the Magnanimous.
The town is located on the right bank of the Margo River, about 32 km (19 mi) southwest from Valencia, Spain’s third-largest city, and 305 km (189 mi) to the southeast of Madrid, the capital. It lies at an altitude of 32 m (104 ft) above sea level and covers an area of 23,7 sq km (9.1 sq mi).
