Not much is known about the city of Valencia, other than the fact that it has a market square and that the king, Alfonso the Not-As-Wise, lives in a palace which has dungeons. Unlike other regions in the Barbaric Archipelago, no dragons reside in Valencia, leaving the inhabitants to believe the creatures are just a myth.
The king of Valencia, Alfonso the Not-As-Wise, bought what he believed to be a statue from Elmyr Duchamps and placed it in the market place. The statue was actually a hibernating Catastrophic Quaken called Lethiferous Cromlech, which was covered in liquid stone. After almost ten years, Lethiferous Cromlech awoke from his deep sleep and flew away from the city. The event was witnessed only by a drunken man, who wasn't believed by anyone, and was imprisoned for vandalism in the palace dungeons.
