In the 8th century, the Arabs baptised it as al-Bayda, which means "the White," for the whitish clays of the valley. This region of the interior of Valéncia has more than thirty villages surrounded by mountains, springs, and ravines. But if this region is known for a reason, it is for its textile industry – a long tradition that takes us to the early twentieth century.
The depopulation of some of the municipalities in the Region of Valencia has been typical for decades: the climate, the lack of infrastructures, the difficulties of access, the lack of work or medical attention with minimal services, make many inhabitants decide to move to other places. On the other hand, the hardness of these lands for the people who inhabit them, make them attractive for those who are in search of getting lost in a haven of peace and tranquillity.
