Situated at 1,222 metres of altitude and only 3.5 km from Vielha, Montcorbau offers a splendid panoramic view of the peaks of Sarraèra and Tuc Nere, whose white summits contrast with the green of the leafy forests of Baricauba. Its parish church, dedicated to Sant Estèue, is Romanesque in origin, although as in the case of other churches in the region, it includes later Gothic and Baroque additions. One striking feature is the strong sense of popular tastes conveyed the building’s interior, reminiscent of that of Sant Joan de Boí. A small and welcoming country guesthouse in the village provides accommodation.
