Rincón de Ademuz (Valencian: "Racó d'Ademuz") is an exclave of the province of Valencia located between the provinces of Cuenca and Teruel. It is less densely populated than other Valencian regions and its total number of inhabitants is distributed between seven municipalities of which only Ademuz has over 1,000 inhabitants.

Most of the ancient populations were of Muslim origin. Conquered by the Christians in 1210, it returned to Islamic hands until reconquered by Jaume I in 1259, who included it with the region in the Kingdom of Valencia.

Its strategic importance in medieval times was enormous, since the valley that forms the Túria river to its pass Aragón puts Ademuz within the Aragón province.

For most of the twentieth century, cultivation of apple trees was the main ecconomic activity in the region. Some apple varieties are said to be endemic, especially the "esperiega" or "espedriega". Due to large migration, which saw thousands of inhabitants move to major cities such as Valencia or Barcelona, agriculture declined and has almost been abandoned today.
