Today the main occupation is the cultivation of Olives and that can be seen from the numerous olive trees around the terraces of the village. Sadly, there are no hotels or guest houses in this village and it has very few visitors even during the summer.
The century’s old Oak tree is located in the centre of Nivica. It represents a segregated tree, with an altitude of over 18 m, a trunk diameter up to 250 cm and over 270 years old. It has a regular crown and a perimeter over 30 m. Under his shadow, many meetings and assemblies of village and province residents have been held.
The ruins of the Nivica Castle are atop a steep cliff, surrounded by abysses, with a depth of 200-400 meters. On the three sides there is a natural protection, while only from the West is protected by a stone wall with lime mortar with a width of over one meter. Until recently there is an inner gate with a vault, built with hewn stones of 0.5-1 meters long, extracted from the rocks of the area.
An interesting place is a restaurant, located at the centre of the village, offers typical local specialities like fresh baked meat and traditional pies (byreks). I recommend this place if you visit the village of Nivica.
The bay of Kakome is located west of the village of Nivica, between cape of Qefali and Krorza. It represents a small, but quite picturesque bay. An ex-military bay, this place is difficult to approach as often is guarded, luckily visitors can visit this place from the small paths next to the mountains foot.
