I finish municipal of Cabó almost includes/understands the totality of the valley of the same name, perfectly delimited by the mountain ranges of You plow and Prada, to the north; by the one of Boumort, to the west; and   by the one of Sant Joan, to the south. She crosses all I finish the river of Cabó, that is born under the meadow of Olient, close the mountain range of Prada. 
From half-full of century X, the valley belonged to família of the Caboet, that also had extensive territories, like valleys of Sant Joan and Andorra. This lineage was united with those of Castellbò in century XII. 
A local highway, that leaves from C-14 (old C-1313) for the height of Organyà, communicates all the towns of the valley until the villa of Cabó, where continuous, like track without asphalting, until the CAP of the Vall. Another dirt road unites Cabó with the uninhabited one of Senyús.
Still is passable the old way, known like the Car by the neighbors of the valley. The milk cattle ranch is the main economic activity of the municipality, although in the last years it has suffered also, as the rest of the region, the reduction of the operations. The old cultures of vineyards and olive trees, that had been predominant in the valley, are now almost testimonial. 
The population is concentrated at heart of the valley and next to the highway, in the three nuclei at the moment inhabited: Cabó, the Vilar and the Pujal, in addition to diverse masías.
