La Nucía offers all visitors free guided tours in several languages along the Old Town. They are called “Viernes Turísticos”, because they are held on Fridays. They start at the Tourist Information Point, located in the Youth Centre .
The main objective of this initiative, completely free for tourists, is to help them discover the historical buildings and beautiful spots spread along La Nucía Old Town.

After this visit, they will continue walking along Carrer Major until the Public Washhouse, an outdoor ethnological museum, perfectly preserved.
From that point, the guided tour will continue through Av. Porvilla and its vantage point, with wonderful views over the Mountain Chain of La Marina Baixa.
