La Torreta del Llac is surrounded by other stately homes characterized by their own style and with shapes, colors and architectural details. All these are, in fact, a testament to the splendor of Puigcerdà from when the intellectual and industrial bourgeoisie of Barcelona chose this enclave to spend the summer and enjoy its landscape and natural beauty. This transformation gave the town the stately and tourist character that is still preserved today and is one of its attractions.

The region of Alta Cerdanya, which administratively belongs to France, and Baixa Cerdanya, a territory administered by Catalonia and which at the same time is divided between Girona and Lleida, both belonging to Catalonia.
