An infinite white mantle of almond blossom: this is the color of Xixona fields until the spring, when the harvest of the fruit starts. A harvest which is then turned, by skilled craftsmen, into a typical Spanish Christmas treat: nougat. Legend has it that many years ago a king married a Scandinavian princess who felt sad when she left behind the eternal snows of her country. The king, eager to see again the smile of his beloved, had thousands of almond trees planted which, in blooming, turned the landscape white. The princess smiled again and the humble peasants regained joy: they began harvesting almonds and nougat became their main source of income.
