Bukovica (pronounced [ˈbuːkɔvitsa]; Italian: Boccavizza) is a village in the lower Vipava Valley in the Municipality of Renče-Vogrsko in the Littoral region of Slovenia.
Bukovica is a common toponym and oronym in Slovenia. It is derived from the adjective bukov 'beech' (from bukev 'beech tree') and originally referred to the local vegetation. The Italian name of the settlement was Boccavizza.
The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Lawrence and was rebuilt in 1928 after the old church in a slightly different location in the village was destroyed in the First World War. It belongs to the Koper Diocese.
