Boada de Roa
When, in 1143, Alfonso VII granted the jurisdiction of Sepúlveda, the Community of Villa and Tierra de Roa emerged, being one of its 33 villages.
The current personality of the town comes from the early medieval period, in the period of the reconquest-repopulation that in these parts of the Meseta were operated in the tenth century. In 1900 the inhabitants were 414. The strong changes that have taken place in Spain , especially in the agricultural sector, have affected Boada, but the neighbors have known how to accept and adapt their traditional feelings to the impositions of the times. Its main wealth revolves around the exploitation of wine.
Places of interest:
- Nuestra Señora de la Antigua Church
- Hermitage of San Andrés: In the hill overlooking the town of Boada, there is this chapel that was the church of the Monastery of San Andrés de Boada, which retains the old portico with arches, in the style of rural churches of the Middle Ages. The temple has left behind its original function and has been converted into a cultural space thanks to the initiative of the Friends of the Abbey of San Andrés Cultural Association. It hosts cultural weeks, exhibitions and other punctual activities.
