Jijona is the sweetest place in the world but not only for its prestigious gastronomy. The castle is a tangible demonstration of the Arab culture. Its old city centre, with narrow streets, takes us back to the 14th century. Its sources, the Museum of turrón, cultural activities and hiking routes make of this destination a delight.

At Christmas, the streets and houses are dressed in lights and flowers, and in the Region of Valéncia, we go beyond adding a Valencian flavour to our Christmas recipes and celebrating these festivities with unique events.
Few cities exist, not only in the Region of Valéncia or in Spain and, by extension in the rest of the world, that associate its name to a product or a brand more clearly than today's destination. The image of Xixona or Jijona is undeniably linked to its famous nougat, universally recognised for the quality of the product and, above all, its massive production for Christmas time. Do you know the recipe?
During Christmas holidays, there is nothing better than having a typical Christmas treat: Xixona nougat. Have you tried it?
No plans for the kings of the house? Do you think you always do the same with them? Enjoy an entertaining day with children in the Comunitat Valenciana museums.
