la nucia

This town is situated in the Valencian community just a few kilometres inland from Altea and the Mediterranean sea. About 18000 residents live in the village that is located in a valley with many fruit trees. The town centre lays on a hillside with views over the coastline and the sea.

 

Historyla nucia

The name of La Nucia proceeds from the Arabic “Naziha”  that means delicious. Back then it was a group of farmhouses that were a gift from king Jaime 1 to Beltran de Bellpuig. At the beginning of the 17th century, it was part of the barony of Polop. After that, it split from it and as a result, the town became independent in 1705.

 

 

The economy of La Nucia

With so many fruit trees growing around town agriculture has always been one of the most important ways of living. In recent years this has shifted towards tourism being the most import form of income for La Nucia. Nowadays tourism, the cultivation of almonds, as well as olives and citrus are its main economic activities.

Community

As tourism has grown over the last decades so have the many nationalities that have come to live in La Nucia. They mainly live in single-family houses spread over the many urbanisations that this town has to offer. The CV-70 road that leads to Benidorm is where most businesses such as supermarkets, shops and restaurants can be found. The old town with the many small streets is a pleasure to enjoy during spring and autumn days.
