The Valencian Community (Valencian: Comunitat Valenciana, Spanish: Comunidad Valenciana) is an autonomous community of Spain.

According to Valencia's Statute of Autonomy, the Valencian people are a nationality. Their origins date back to the Aragonese reconquest of the Moorish Taifa of Valencia, which was taken by James I of Aragon in 1238 during the Reconquista. The newly founded Kingdom of Valencia was granted wide self-government under the Crown of Aragon. Valencia experienced its Golden Age in the 15th century, as it became the Crown's economic capital. Self-government continued after the unification of the Spanish Kingdom, but was eventually suspended in 1707 by Philip V of Spain as a result of the Spanish War of Succession. Valencian nationalism resurged towards the end of the 19th century, which led to the modern conception of the Valencian Country. Self-government under the Generalitat Valenciana was finally reestablished in 1982 after Spanish transition to democracy.

Many Valencian people speak Valencian, a Romance language which is the region's own co-official language, also known as Catalan in other regions. As of 2020, the population of the Valencian Community comprised 10.63% of the Spanish population.
