Iberian Levante.

The Levante, or Llevant in Valencian, is a name used to refer to the eastern region of the Iberian peninsula, on the Mediterranean coast. It roughly corresponds to the former Xarq al-Andalus, but has no modern geopolitical definition. Rather, it broadly includes the regions of the Valencian Community, Murcia, Catalonia, Almería, the eastern part of Castile-La Mancha (Albacete and Cuenca) and the southern part of Aragon.

However, In its normal usage, the Levante specifically refers to only the Valencian Community and Murcia.

Among inhabitants of the so-called Levante, the term is rarely used. Its literal meaning would be “the east,” and thus makes sense only from the perspective of those who live to the west of the Valencian Community.
