Setau Sagèth, the Tour of Val d'Aran

The Setau Sageth is a route that begins and ends in the Aran Valley. It is a trip along the history of the Aran Valley through villages, riversides and hills that have seen miners, sheperds and trade carried on donkeys.

"The first part follows a path called “Camin Reiau”, which for centuries has communicated the villages of the hillside and shows the cultural heritage of the area.

The Aran Valley is a mining territory. At the end of the XVIII century, mining had already been mentioned and it was at the end of the XIX century that mineral extraction started. This continued active till 1953. Some trace of that period, which saw new born paths through valleys and hills, remains in the Toran Valley and in the area of Liat.

Seasonal livestock migration paths, through which flocks from Aragon were taken towards the pastures of Valarties and Colomers in the Aran Valley. The area of the big lakes of Mar and Tort de Rius, which belong to the National Park of Aiguestortes and St Maurici Lake, is of exceptional beauty.

The "Puerto de Vielha", natural way in and out of the Valley, which has been used for its habitants for centuries.

In 1998, the "Conselh Generau d'Aran" in collaboration with the "Federació d'Entitats d'Excursionistes de Catalunya" carried out the signposting of the paths of Aran that now make up this trek.
