Náquera (Valencian: Nàquera) is a municipality in the region (comarca) of Camp de Túria in the Valencian Community, Spain; placed in the NE of the province of Valencia at a distance of 24 km from Valencia (capital city). The main church is Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación.


Located at the foothills of the Sierra Calderona, it is known as the "door to the Calderona". The town is placed on the side of a mound of 215 m of altitude, split by the Naquera Creek; it is accessed through agricultural areas and residential suburbs, composed of little villas or chalets, mainly inhabited on weekends and during summer holidays. The area of the municipal term is 3870 ha, of which 1020 ha (26% of the total area) are within the limits of the Natural Park of the Sierra Calderona all located on the piedmont.


Its climate is transitional Mediterranean steppe: cold and semiarid ( Köppen-Geiger: BSk), with a mild temperature of 16 °C on annual average, the highest daily average in August (be 33 °C) and the lowest in February (9 °C) and scarce rainfall (457mm) with high in October and low on July. This has favoured the agriculture, previously based on rainfed crops and nowadays citrus. The area of the non-cultivated term is very wooded, with abundant wildlife and a great diversity of autochthonous Mediterranean vegetation, such as the Holm Oak (Quercus Rotundifolia).
