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. In the second level were found houses dating from t

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.

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.
