The Valencian Community is an autonomous community in Spain and its capital is Valencia. It is located on the east side of the Iberian peninsula along the Mediterranean coast, and the area has long been a human settlement for thousands of years.
Moroccan and Arab Moors occupied the city of Valencia in 714. In 1238, the Christian king James I of Aragon conquered the city and established the new Kingdom of Valencia with its own constitution.
