Llíber is a municipality of Comunidad Valenciana, Spain. It is located in the north-east of the Province of Alicante, within the region of the Marina Alta and is one of a number of villages in the area known as Vall de Pop.
Llíber is the small town, with its 1,099 inhabitants, in the sub-region known as Vall de Pop. Traditionally linked to Jalón, from which it is a neighbor and from which it became independent. The economy is basically dry land agriculture, so its gastronomy is based on grapes, from which raisins are extracted and muscatel is made; and the almond, with which they make delicious carquinyolis. In Llíber you can still see the vestiges of the once flourishing industry of raisins; the riu-raus.
Among the places of interest in the town we find the church of Sant CosLlíberme and Sant Damià, built in the 19th century, or the old farmhouses of Marnes and El Cau.
Llíber and the surrounding lands were conquered in 1256 by King James I of Aragon. The lady Constance of Sicily enjoyed the Llíber incomes until November 1300, when James II transferred the incomes to those of those of Pego and La Vall d’Uixó. From 1413 until 1444 Llíber was part of the dominion of the Martorell, lineage to which belonged the famous novelist, Joanot Martorell. In 1444 the town of Llíber was sold at auction at the request of the creditors of Galceran Martorell.
The purchasers were Gonzalo de Híjar, Comendador de Montalbán and his wife, Inés, de Portugal. On September 12 1444, Gonzalo de Hijar, sold Llíber to his son Pedro. Later it belonged to the Duke of Almodóvar. In 1609, Llíber had 25 houses and was an annex of Xaló which became independent. Until 1707 Llíber belonged to the government of Xàtiva (Júcar), which until 1833 was part of the government (township) of Dénia.
Llíber is accessed from the AP7 motorway, exiting at junction 63, on the CV745 from Benissa, or from the N332 at Gata de Gorgos on the CV748. Llíber borders the municipalities of Alcalalí, Benissa, Gata de Gorgos, Jalón, Pedreguer and Senija.
