Ribera Baja is a meeting point in Añana. Rivabellosa hosted in 1463 the meetings for the preparation of ordinances that regulated the civil, legal and criminal life of Araba / Álava for about 400 years. And even today it remains the administrative center, where the headquarters of the Cuadrilla de Añana are located.

In its streets you can find heritage buildings like the Palace of Saez de Santamaría, with thetower as its highlight, due to it breaking the architectural horizontality, or the XV century parish church of "Nuestra Señora del Rosario" (Our Lady of the Rosary).

The pilgrims of Camino de Santiago left their mark in a busy hospital, which is currently barely preserved, but that gives Rivabellosa the Jacobean character, being the exit door from Alava in the journey to Galicia.

Walking through the municipality, visitors will be pleasantly surprised with the careful and meticulous restoration that the Temple of Culture Quintanilla Kulturgunea has undergone. It is declared of Cultural Interest in the category of monument and it is dedicated to cultural activities in Añana.
