Spanish Translation

The following list of Spanish words in Castellano or Valenciano will be seen frequently when travelling through the Valencia and Alicante regions of Spain. Mountain maps will also use some of these words.

Throughout the Valencian Province you will find a mixture of Castellano and Valenciano where local councils have made their own choice to adopt either language for town names and signs although most towns and villages have now adopted to use Valenciano.
