Alboraya

Alboraya or Alboraia is a town and municipality of the province of Valencia, Spain. It is situated very close to the city of Valencia.Originally a farming community, Alboraia has grown in the last decades following the development of the metropolitan area of Valencia. Better transport connections (including 2 stations of the Valencia metro system : Alboraia-Palmaret and Alboraia-Peris Aragó), urban exodus from the city and foreign immigration have increased the population from 11,267 (1986) to 18,656 (2002 census). Of these 58.84% declared themselves to be Valencian speakers.In 1994, 45.8% worked in the service sector, 33% in industry, 16.7% in agriculture and 3.60% in construction.In the elections of May 2011, the People's Party (PP) lost their absolute majority, as they fell from 11 to 8 council seats. The remaining seats were won by the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) (5), Unión Popular de Alboraya (3), Coalició Compromís (3) and Ciudadanos por Alboraya (Citizens for Alboraya) (2) Subsequently a coalition of everyone but the PP was formed, with Miguel Chavarria becoming the first PSOE Mayor since 1999.Traditional crops are based on irrigated, intensive farming. Especially important are the tiger nuts (; Valencian: Xufes), which are used to produce the world famous horchata, a popular refreshment. The town has many orxateries – bars in which to relax and chill out while having an horchata in the hot Valencian summers.
