Overview

Valencia, bilingual (Catalan and Castilian), is the capital of Pais Valencia and one of the most important cities of the Iberian Peninsula. The city does not have extraordinary dimensions (as it only has 800,000 inhabitants); nevertheless, Valencia and its adjacent municipalities (including cities like Mislata, Torrent, Burjassot, Godella, Manises, Alboraia, etc.) form a considerable urban zone, which has 1.7 million inhabitants. It is the third largest metropolitan area in Spain, after Madrid and Barcelona.

Valencia's Metro is composed of five metro lines and two tram lines, with 134 km and 128 stations. It can be considered not only a metro, but also a suburban service due to the fact that it reaches cities far away from Valencia. Rodalies Renfe network (suburban railways) completes the train services in the city. The first of the tram lines (line 4), which opened in May 1994, made Valencia the first city in Spain with a modern tramway. The system is operated by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (FGV), which also operates the tram line in Alicante.
