what to see







Bóveda is located towards the western limits of Valdegovía and Alava, not far short of the Losa valley in Burgos territory. It backs onto one of the irregular steep slopes sent out by the mountains standing behind it and is at a mean height above sea level of 691 metres.

A large part of the village lies on the hillside that comes down from the Sierra, with some houses standing on the other side of the road. Its site is typical of the wayside villages in the region, influenced as they were by the channels of communication reaching them

Although the village housing is quite tightly concentrated, it is also true that a large number of the houses are detached from one another .
