Montcada, is a municipality in the comarca of Horta Nord in the Valencian Community, Spain. On the official writings in Latin Monscatanus was used, from mons and Celtic catanus'juniper', making'Montcada' the correct original spelling and Moncada a vulgarization of the name; however the town's name is written Moncada, but in València accept dual Montcada/Moncada denomination, as the origin of the name is linked from the 13th century to the lineage of the House of Montcada, although the removal of the letter t dates from the 15th century, where the Moncada form was used in the earliest known documents relating to the Royal Acequia of the municipality, this denomination coming from the vulgar pronunciation, simplified by omitting the letter t. Moreover, government agencies on language as the Valencian Academy of Language always use Montcada in Catalan to refer to the name of the municipality of Valencia; the relief of the municipality is formed by a quaternary plain on the rising in the northern and western parts of Tertiary hills, an extension of the Sierra Calderona, reaching its highest point in Tos Pelat hill situated on the border between the terms of Bétera and Montcada.
The hills extend to the town center that has begun to occupy the hill of Santa Barbara. The Carraixet Ravine penetrates by northwest and cuts across the term to go out by southeast, along The Alfara Patriarch; the urban environment is the core of Moncada, together with the following population centers: MontcadaBarri dels DolorsSant Isidre de BenaixeveBarri del PilarMasies The municipality of Montcada borders the following locations: Albalat dels Sorells, Alfara the Patriarch, Bétera, Museros, Nàquera and València, all of the Province of Valencia. The territory of the municipality of Montcada was the subject of an intense human occupation from the early days of Romanization. There are few data. In the area known as the Xop and in some fields for extraction of clay for pottery, appeared a few fragments of ceramic belonging to handmade vessels and two arrowheads. Before the Roman times is the Iberian settlement of Tos Pelat, which remaining parts of its walled town and were seen sections of the walls of the rooms, were for a long time been collected fragments of Iberian vessels with geometric decoration painted and whole pieces.
We know the existence of two large rustic Roman villas, one in the departure of Pou or Pousaig and the other in the departure of Bordellet. By the characteristics of the collected materials, both towns should to blossom during the 2nd and early 3rd centuries AD; the origin of the population is attributed to the Iberian or Roman period, due to the archaeological materials found in its term. King James I in 1239 granted to the inhabitants of the conquered lands of Valencia, of all water and major medium and minor irrigation ditch, but literal, expressly reserved the channel, called Real, that it was going to Puzol, better known as "Royal Ditch of Moncada" that irrigate the most of the left bank of the River Turia, from Paterna to Puçol, it extended the boundaries of irrigation on the twenty towns and thirteen districts that conform the irrigable area of the Royal Ditch of Moncada the populations of Quart de Poblet, Burjassot, Rocafort, Alfara of the Patriarch, Vinalesa and Mirambell, Almàssera, Meliana, Albalat dels Sorells, Albuixech, Masamagrell, Puebla de Farnals, Rafelbunyol, El Puig and Puçol, the hamlets of Benimámet, Masarrojos, Carpesa, Borbotó, Cases de Bàrcena, Tauladella and Vistabella.
The first written documentation come from, however, of the time of the Catalan conquest. Some years Montcada returned to crown and was changed to the Order of the Temple by the Farmhouse of Russafa in 1246. In 1248 the commander of the Templars granted Municipal corporation Population Charter and about in the same time was created the bailiff of Moncada, one of the richest of the Order of the Temple, after the Order of Montesa, passed after being suppressed in the early 14th century. During the War of Succession in 1706, Moncada was occupied by the Bourbon army; this occupation lasted short time as Austracist general, forced it to raise its reals. After the Civil War, the city suffered a widespread destruction during the conflict and Salvador Rodrigo Rosalen is left in front of City Hall. In 1996 to realize the excavations for the foundations of a house in Barreres street were found seven human burials pointing to an Islamic origin. Located archaeologically the location of the Islamic necropolis, the subsequent discovery in 2006 of some silos and the remains of two houses in The Ravalet, dating from the Almohad period, allowed the archaeological finding Islamic origin or previous of the city.
Between November 2006 and January 2007 in San Roque Street, following the demolition of a house, they found 25 to 30 bodies of young people in good condition and a few babies in good condition, dating from around the 12th century. Some showing large head injuries, which were shattered by impacts, it is presumed. In early 2006, were found traces of the Moorish occupation, in what some experts have dubbed "the hamlet of Moncada" next to the Palace of the Counts of Rótova, current city council of the Municipality of Moncada; this finding corresponds to a first level.

Comarcas of Spain
In Spain traditionally and some autonomous communities are divided into comarcas. Some comarcas have a defined status, are regulated by law and their comarcal councils have some power. In some other cases their legal status is not formal for they correspond to natural areas, like valleys, river basins and mountainous areas, or to historical regions overlapping different provinces and ancient kingdoms. In such comarcas or natural regions municipalities have resorted to organizing themselves in mancomunidad, like the Taula del Sénia, the only legal formula that has allowed those comarcas to manage their public municipal resources meaningfully. There is a comarca, the Cerdanya, divided between two states, the southwestern half being counted as a comarca of Spain, while the northeastern half is part of France. In English, a comarca is equivalent to a district, area or zone.

Ademuz is a municipality in the comarca of Rincón de Ademuz in the Valencian Community, Spain. The name in Valencian is Ademús; the many archaeological remains still present from different time periods - Neolithic, Roman - reveal an early occupation of the area. Notwithstanding, the first written references are Arabic ones, focusing on its castle, whose advantageous emplacement dominated the Turia river and its natural passage from the lands of Aragon to the city of Valencia; the Muslim fortress of Al-Dāmūs was conquered by Peter II of Aragon in 1210, with the aid of the hospitalier and templar knights, who were rewarded with the right to collect some taxes from the area. It fell back into Muslim hands shortly thereafter, it was incorporated into the kingdom of Valencia by James I of Aragon, who put it under direct control of the crown, together with the other historical village of the comarca, Castielfabib. As a royal villa, Ademuz periodically sent an elected representative to the Corts Valencianes.
As a frontier fortress, it suffered from the wars with Castille in the 14th century: both Ademuz and Castielfabib were invaded and occupied by Peter I of Castile. The heroic defense and the loyalty of its population were rewarded by Peter IV of Aragón and his immediate successors, who gave the villa new rights and privileges. From the beginnings of the 14th century onwards Ademuz and its countryside were an Encomienda of the Order of Montesa, which anyway never ruled over Ademuz, limiting itself to collect some taxes they had rights over. On June 7 1656, the villa suffered a massive earthquake which destroyed the primitive church of San Pedro Intramuros, the city council and forty other houses. Notwithstanding, Ademuz's castle will still prove its worth during the many civil wars of the 19th century, with it being occupied and rebuilt several times by carlist troops; the two original municipalities which existed in the Rincón's comarca and Ademuz, became fragmented over time, affecting specially that of Ademuz, from which several villages seceded as they reached some populational and economical importance: Vallanca, Puebla de San Miguel, Casas Altas y Casas Bajas.
Ademuz is situated in the middle of the Rincón de Ademuz, a Spanish comarca belonging to Valencian Community representing an exclave situated between the territories of the provinces of Cuenca and Teruel. The town counts three pedanías: Mas del Olmo and Val de la Sabina; as of the 2008 census of INE, the population of Ademuz was 1,269. Candel Tortajada, F.: Viaje al Rincón de Ademuz. Barcelona, 1977.
