Levante, Spain

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Levante in Spain
The Levante in Spain

The Levante (Spanish: [leˈβante]; Catalan: Llevant [ʎəˈβan, ʎəˈvant, ʎeˈβan, ʎeˈvant]; "Levant, East") is a name used to refer to the eastern region of the Iberian Peninsula, on the Spanish Mediterranean coast. It roughly corresponds to the former Xarq Al-Andalus, but has no modern geopolitical definition. Rather, it broadly includes the autonomous communities of Valencia (provinces of Alicante, Castellón and Valencia), Murcia, Catalonia (Barcelona, Girona and Tarragona), the eastern part of Castile-La Mancha (Albacete and Cuenca), eastern Andalusia (Almería, Granada and Jaén), southern Aragon (Teruel) and the Balearic Islands.

However, in its normal usage, the Levante specifically refers to the Valencian Community, Murcia, Almería, the Balearics and the coast of Catalonia.

Among inhabitants of the Levante, the term is rarely used. Its literal meaning would be "the east", and thus makes sense only from the perspective of those who live to the west of Valencia, Catalonia, or the Balearics. However, the Levante does lend its name to a popular regional beer, Estrella Levante, owned by S.A. Damm and produced in Murcia as well as Levante UD, a Spanish football club team based in Valencia.
