It is shown that many important features of nested fractals, such as the Hausdorff dimension and measure, the geodesic distance induced by the immersion in \(\mathbb{R}^n\) (when it exists), and the self-similar energy can be recovered by the description of the fractal in terms of spectral triples. We describe in particular the case of the Vicsek square, showing that all self-similar energies can be described through a deformation of the square to a rhombus.
