Álava province


Álava ( and officially Álava-Araba) is a province of northern Spainmarker in the southern part of the Basquemarker Autonomous Community. The province numbers a population of 301,926 inhabitants (2006 official estimate) in an area of 2,963 km².

It is bordered by the provinces of Burgosmarker, La Riojamarker, Navarremarker, Guipúzcoamarker, and Biscay. The Condado de Treviñomarker is an enclave of province Burgos (Castile and Leónmarker) surrounded by Alavese land, although strong population support advocates Treviño's attachment to the Basque Autonomous Community.

The vast majority of the population clusters in the capital city of Álava Vitoria-Gasteizmarker (Vitoria is the Spanish name, Gasteiz the Basque name), which also serves as the capital of the autonomous community. The remainder of the territory is largely countryside and crops dotted with sparse population nuclei distributed into seven counties (cuadrillas): Añanamarker; Ayala; Campezo; Laguardiamarker; Salvatierramarker; Vitoria-Gasteizmarker; Zuyamarker. It also contains the municipality of Berganzomarker.
