The village is on a little pass that connected Canal San Bovo to Imer of Primiero. It is placed between the rocky Totoga Mountain and the southern slopes of Redasega. The road that climbs up from Canale passes through grasslands dotted with typical hay barns.
Not so far from the village, the small church of San Silvestro has always had a religious and historical importance for the valley.
Gobbera is considered to be the link between Canal San Bovo and Imer which for centuries formed an unique community..
