BURRIANA, a seaport of eastern Spain, in the province of Castellon de la Plana; on the estuary of the river Seas, which flows into the Mediterranean Sea. Pop. (1900) 12,962. The harbour of Burriana on the open sea is annually visited by about three hundred small coasting-vessels. Its exports consist chiefly of oranges grown in the surrounding fertile plain, which is irrigated with water from the river Mijares, on the north, and also produces large quantities of grain, oil, wine and melons. Burriana is connected by a light railway with the neighbouring towns of Onda (6595), A1maz6ra (7076), Villarreal (16,o68) and Castellon de la Plana (29,904). Its nearest station on the Barcelona-Valencia coast railway is Villarreal.
