SUECA, a town of eastern Spain, in the province of Valencia, near the left bank of the river Jucar, and on the Silla-Cullera railway. Pop. (1900), 14,435. Sueca is separated from the Mediterranean Sea (7 M. east) by the Sierra de Cullera. It is a modern town, although many of the houses have the flat roofs, view-turrets (miradores) and horseshoe arches characteristic of Moorish architecture. There are a few handsome public buildings, such as the hospital, town-hall and theatre. Sueca has a thriving trade in grain and fruit from the Jfcar valley, which is irrigated by waterways created by the Moors.
