In recent decades it has gone from being a village in the Horta region of Valencian Country to the most densely populated borough in the Catalan Countries and one of the ten most densely populated in Europe, with a population of 43,363 (2006 figures) spread across 2.1 km².
This growth has been assisted by better transport communications including the opening of two stations of the Valencian metro on 20 May 1999 in the town which provide a direct connection to the main railway station and the main shopping area in carrer Colom. Further extensions westwards to the València airport and the towns of Quart de Poblet and Manises were completed in 2007.
Further construction work which was completed on green belt land in 2005 will further increase Mislata's population density.
The area has been, in a physical sense, almost swallowed up by the encroaching suburbs of València in recent years.
Mislata is well connected with central València. In addition to several bus routes, Mislata now has two metro stations, Mislata and Mislata-Almassil. A third station, Nou d'Octubre is nearby. Mislata is the only town outside the city of València to be categorised as "zone A" by the private taxi system.
In addition to the famous Falles festival which runs from 15–20 March, numerous other festivals also take place such as those in honour of Saint Michael Archangel (in September) or Saint Francis of Asisi (in October).
Monuments and places of interest
Mislata's main places of interest are the church of the "Mare de Déu dels Àngels" (Virgin of the Angels) and the "Creu Coberta" (Covered Cross) that separates the town from València.
