Monday, 27 March 2017 : Valverde, who won Sunday’s seventh and final stage.
Alberto Contador was second in the final classification, with Valverde’s Movistar team-mate Marc Soler completing an all-Spanish top three.
Chris Froome finished 30th.
Victory continues a superb start to the season for 36-year-old Valverde, who also beat Contador by a second to win the Tour of Andalusia and was victorious in the one day Tour of Murcia for a fifth time in February.
Valverde’s win is even more impressive given every Movistar rider was handed a one minute penalty for infringements by Jose Joaquin Rojas in Tuesday’s team time trial.
His secured the overall win with a perfectly-timed sprint finish to pip Colombian Jarlinson Pantano on Sunday.
Valverde had launched a late attack alongside Irishman Daniel Martin with three kilometres to go of the 138.7km race around Barcelona.
“Today I felt good after a really hard stage yesterday, everything was easier today because of the team,” said Valverde.
“I knew Daniel [Martin] would attack when he did as he always does that and I worked very hard to stay with him and in the end I won by a hair’s breadth.”
The Spaniard also won stages three and five of the event.
Meanwhile at the Gent-Wevelgem one-day classic, local favourite and Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet of BMC won, holding off a challenge from fellow BelgianJen Keukeleire and the advancing world champion Peter Sagan.
Van Avermaet celebrated a hat-trick of victories in the Belgian cobbled classics this season having also won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and E3 Harelbeke.
In the under-23 race, Britain’s Jacob Hennessy sprinted to victory.
