La Vall d'Uixó
La Vall d'Uixó is a town situated in eastern Spain, in the Valencian province of Castelló. La Vall is located 25 km to the south of the province's capital Castelló, 45 km to the north of the community's capital Valencia and 8 km to the Mediterranean Sea, so it is at 118 m above sea level; as of 2007, the town is governed by the Spanish conservative People's Party. The current territory of La Vall d'Uixó has been occupied since prehistoric times by different human groups. La cova de Sant Josep and other caves in the surrounding area represent the most ancient vestiges in La Vall, from the chronological point of view; the archaeological works in these caves have revealed that they were occupied by hunters of the Upper Paleolithic period, according to a chronology of the C-14 16,000 years BC. There, two rocky panels were found with representations of cave paintings, giving an idea of the importance of place. People continued living in the Valley during the Bronze Age. During the Bronze Age grew villages located high in the mountains, well fortified with walls and watchtowers.
Its strategic location allowed them to control a vast territory and step into the Serra d'Espadà. The Iberian era was supposed a considerable expansion of the population, as evidenced by the remains of the Iberian city of La Punta d’Orleyl and Poblat Sant Josep. La Punta d'Orleyl has four successive lines of walls and towers. Stresses its acropolis, where the remains were located on at least two large public buildings built with huge stones squared; the Poblat de Sant Josep, located at the top of the hill of the same name, represents a good example of the ancient urbanism. It is small but has a wall, two towers and houses of the Iberian and Roman eras, their time of glory was during the Iberian stages. Years ago, they were occupied during the 4th century AD, in the end of the Roman Empire. During Roman times, the population evolved towards agricultural sector. A few years ago was located the remains of a necropolis of burial, dated between the 6th and 7th centuries and attached to the Visigothic period.
In total we found the remains of 66 individuals with their funerary offerings. The Arab conquest and the establishment of these populations did not change too much the kind of life. Throughout this long period has been able to document the existence of a dozen villages that are located on both sides of the Belcaire river; these are Alcúdia, Benigafull, Benizahat and Benigasló. Each had its own industrial area, as well as its necropolis; the political and legal organization of La Vall was under the chairmanship of Castell d'Uixó. In 1250, la Vall received La Carta Pobla. Since that moment, la Vall become an important city inside the Kingdom of Valencia; this situation did not lead too significant changes, because the Muslim community of La Vall maintained the structure of society. La Vall d'Uixó underwent profound changes during this time. Since the expulsion of the Moors in 1609, all citizens in la Vall d’Uixó should be replaced by Christians, but it was not so; the Moors retained their houses and continued working the land and carrying out its industrial activities, but under Christian control.
During the 18th century, the population of La Vall increased significantly. The six villages joined each other and they created El poble de Dalt and El poble de Baix. From the 19th century, both little towns formed a central square where the City Hall is located at the present. Throughout the 20th century was the second major economic and demographic expansion. La Vall attended to a high immigration because of the heavy industrialization of the ancient craft of footwear, lasting in time until the beginning of the 90s. Since and after a period of economic crisis due to the closure of this company, la Vall changed its socio-economic structure, centred now on the city commerce.

Provinces of Spain
Spain and its autonomous communities are divided into fifty provinces. Spain's provincial system was recognized in its 1978 constitution but its origin dates back to 1833. Ceuta and the Plazas de soberanía are not part of any provinces; the layout of Spain's provinces follows the pattern of the territorial division of the country carried out in 1833. The only major change of provincial borders since that time has been the subdivision of the Canary Islands into two provinces rather than one; the provinces served as transmission belts for policies enacted in Madrid, as Spain was a centralised state for most of its modern history. The importance of the provinces has declined since the adoption of the system of autonomous communities in the period of the Spanish transition to democracy, they remain electoral districts for national elections and as geographical references: for instance in postal addresses and telephone codes. A small town would be identified as being in, Valladolid province rather than the autonomous community of Castile and León.
The provinces were the "building-blocks". No province is divided between more than one of these communities. Most of the provinces—with the exception of Álava, Biscay, Guipúzcoa, Balearic Islands, La Rioja, Navarra — are named after their principal town. Only two capitals of autonomous communities — Mérida in Extremadura and Santiago de Compostela in Galicia — are not the capitals of provinces. Seven of the autonomous communities comprise no more than one province each: Asturias, Balearic Islands, Cantabria, La Rioja, Madrid and Navarra; these are sometimes referred to as "uniprovincial" communities. The table below lists the provinces of Spain. For each, the capital city is given, together with an indication of the autonomous community to which it belongs and a link to a list of municipalities in the province; the names of the provinces and their capitals are ordered alphabetically according to the form in which they appear in the main Wikipedia articles describing them. Unless otherwise indicated, their Spanish language names are the same.
