More info: At Wikipedia you will find a great list of all counties. (German Wikipedia – use Goggle Translator) They are sorted by the three provinces. The information provides information about the population, the area and the density. The respective main places are named with the Spanish as well as the Valencian spelling. Unfortunately, the population figures are a little older, namely from 2002. This has certainly changed in the meantime. The total number of inhabitants of the province increased from 2000 to today by approximately 25%. It is to be assumed that the numbers at least in the coastal cities also lie correspondingly higher. Nevertheless, the list is informative. Because the relations of the districts among themselves can be read very well nevertheless from it.
