The charming village of Santa Barbara de Nexe with its approximately 5.000 inhabitants is perhaps best known for its picturesque white walled church which can be seen from miles away.

Property hunters have various options to choose from. Some apartments and townhouses are for sale in Santa Barbara de Nexe village, while quaint Quintas and cottages, dotted between larger villas, can be found on the outskirts and in the surrounding hillsides and hamlets.
