Burial mounds and dolmens, caves and hill forts, a rushing river and a dam, Indiano houses, beekeeping and a honey fair - a world full of contrasts. That's Boal

The River Navia and its basin mark its life and terrain. With prehistoric riches and a singular history, Boal wears a different face in each of the four seasons of year as well as boasting spectacular scenery like the Penouta and Bobia Ranges, so closely linked to burial mound and dolmen culture, which, along with hill forts like that of Pendia, constitutes one of the hallmarks not only of this borough, but also of the entire Navia History Park. Another of its undeniable hallmarks is the world of beekeeping, which culminates in the honey fair, usually held in late October.

Also spectacular is the dammed-up section of the River Navia at the Doiras Dam, with its leisure and active tourism options in terms of river sports and adventures. A land of stories and legends, with places brimming with magic like the Cova del Demo and towns like the borough capital, Boal, where Indiano architecture constitutes one of its major bastions of heritage, highlighted by the Emigration Interpretation Centre in the village of San Luis. Land of smiths and key-makers, the Iron Crafts Interpretation Centre in Rozadas also displays these trades.
