A municipality located on the northern slope of the Sierra de Benicadell range, in the southern sector of La Valle de Albaida. The municipality is long, stretching from north to south: the northern sector is gently undulating, while the southern sector borders with the Benicadell mountains. The River Micena flows from east to west along the entire northern limit; it is fed by the Beniatjar ravine, which represents the western limit.
The climate is continental; the most frequent winds are “ponent” (east) and “llevant” (west). The later is responsible for bringing rain, usually between autumn and spring. It often snows in the Sierra de Benicadell mountains in January and February.
The local economy is based on agriculture, with terraced fields in the foothills of the mountains. In the mountains there is a vast area of private and state-owned pine forest and scrubland. There is a predominance of dryland crops, such as grapes, cereals and olives. Small irrigation reservoirs, fed with water from various springs, are used for the cultivation of potatoes, maize and vegetables.
The village is located on a hill at the foot of the Benicadell peak. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of the Incarnation; it has two panels attributed to Joan of Joanes. Carbonera Castle lies within the municipality. There is a former snow storage construction on the ridge of the Benicadell.
