Alegría-Dulantzi municipality is divided into two sub-areas, or communes (concejos or kontzejuak). By far the larger of the two is the municipal centre and township of Alegría-Dulantzi itself, which accounts for some 95% of the municipality's population. The municipality also controls a small exclave located to the southeast, called Egileta, which is surrounded by a neighbouring municipality.

The Battle of Alegría de Álava took place here in 1834.
