Spain - December 8th, 2010

This orthorectified image thumbnail shows the eastern coast of Spain from the city of Valencia (upper left corner) to the Cap de la Nau headland (bottom right corner), which marks the southern boundary of the Bay of Valencia.

Valencia is the capital and most populous city of the Autonomous Community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain. Valencia’s port is the biggest on the Mediterranean Western coast, the first of Spain in Container Traffic as of 2008, and the second of Spain in total traffic, handling 20% of Spain’s exports.

Cape Nao (called Cap de la Nau, in Valencian, or Cabo de la Nao, in Spanish, literally meaning “Cape of the Ship”) is a steep, rocky headland located in the municipality of Xàbia, Valencian Community, Spain. It is within the Mediterranean province of Alicante, in the comarca of Marina Alta, and is the easternmost point of the Valencian Community.
