La Nucia, between the sea and the mountains.

Between the sea and the mountains, La Nucia, witness to the wars between the Berbers and the Christians, was originally an Arab farmhouse, its name comes from the word "noziha" which means "delight", a more than appropriate name, as it is a real delight to lose oneself in its alleys, visit its Sunday market, full of antiques, venture into its leafy mountains or simply relax with a glass of wine on a terrace in the old town.
