Geography

Säter is known for the Säter Valley. It is about 5 kilometers long and has a dense vegetation and steeps. On its bottom the Ljuster stream flows. The valley is popular for walking.

Sights

The Old Church of Stora Skedvi is one of Dalarna's oldest, with its oldest parts from the 13th century.

There are several remains from the province's mining history, such as the Östra Silvberg's Mining Area with a silver mining history traced to the 1480s with an adjacent cemetery and chapel. It was closed in the 19th century and the mine itself is today a water filled hole.

Bispbergs gruva was used for mining iron for over 600 years, until it was closed in 1967.
