A typically Pyrenean environment , surrounded by spectacular high mountain landscapes, frames a town that has managed to preserve the rural and traditional air of long ago, maintaining elements of ancestral architecture such as irregular, narrow and steep alleys, the open ditch and houses old built with wood and stone view with slate roofs.

This old rural center has become one of the most tourist spots in the region thanks to the proximity of the Vallter 2000 ski slopes , and the spectacular surroundings.

From Setcases, multiple roads and routes start towards the highest peaks and the deepest valleys. The landscape in Setcases is lived with the 5 senses: admiring its lush green surroundings, feeling the delicacy of the meadows, listening to the murmur of the water, breathing the purity of its air and tasting the exquisite cuisine full of local products.

The most outstanding places of interest are: the Plaza de las Estudios, the Church of San Miguel and Las Minas.

The church of Setcases, dedicated to San Miguel Arcángel, dates from the end of the 17th century. Now, a fire in 1728 sank the roof and the primitive turn (of wood), and destroyed the cover. Its reconstruction was finished in 1729, it would therefore be a building that, after the Gothic period, still retains the constructive formulas such as the warheads or nerves of support of the turns.

Setcases was born more than 1,000 years ago in a high valley of the Pyrenees, next to the first sections of the Ter River, at 1,278 m altitude. Since ancient times, the riches of its surroundings have been visited by mountain and nature lovers.

Setcases is a picturesque town, with carefully restored houses, streets and stone alleys that keep all the traditional flavor. This old rural center has become one of the most tourist spots in the region thanks to the proximity of the Vallter 2000 ski slopes, and the spectacular surroundings. A privileged natural and landscape environment, with a great offer, both gastronomic and hotel, within a rural and quiet environment.
