CERDÀ

The village of Cerdà forms part of the municipalities that make up the administrative region of “La Costera”, approximately 4 km from Xàtiva and 2 km from Canals and L’Alcúdia de Crespins. During recent years, the village has increased in size, probably as a result of its proximity to and good communications with the above-mentioned municipalities. It currently has around 310 inhabitants. It is 60 km from Valencia.
