Espectaculares vistas (Cortals Encamp)From Carlomagno to the present time, the Principality has been writing pages of history and traditions crating an exciting story worthy to be read. This has shaped a small territory ready to be unveiled, full of great incentives that are presented in multiple forms. Andorra, the country of the Pyrenees, houses a rich monumental and natural patrimony, traditions and customs, leisure and entertainment, and of course, a patrimony of snow and sports.

Entorno familiar para la práctica del esquíThis small country beats at the rate of a great green heart. Andorra is literally a synonymous of nature. Some of the essences of this mountain country are the rivers, lakes, springs, meadows, valleys, mountains, etc. Andorra has more than 70 lakes and more than 80 mountain summits over 6,500 feet. This abundant nature is an invitation to visit the Natural Parks, to go on eco-tourism tours and excursions and to enjoy a great range of activities adapted to all levels. During the winter and under the incomparable frame of the white blanket, the snow (Grandvalira and Vallnord ski areas) opens a great range of possibilities that serve to complement the visit of the sanctuary: walks and organized excursions, alpine and Nordic ski, etc.

Pareja en CaldeaNo mater what time of the year it is, nature decorates each and every corner of the principality and provides travelers and visitors with unforgettable landscapes.

Protected by this magnificent natural patrimony we find Andorra la Vella, the capital city of the country, that joined at Escaldes-Engordany do a place full of life and energy. In its streets, a great commercial axis, the visitor enjoys shopping, the culture, nature and most of all, he finds relax at the thermal waters of Chaldea.

Románico andorrano
And of course, a millennial country as this possesses a great cultural legacyMonuments, museums, traditions and itineraries are part of this legacy. In addition to the Sanctuary of Meritxell, there are other emblematic places, such as Casa de Vall (Vall house), icon of the political and social structure of the country during centuries. But there is an artistic manifestation that should be highlighted, the Andorran Romanesque: small and simple Romanesque churches, distributed around the Andorran valleys, are unique treasures that take us to past times, in which these buildings were the center of the social and religious life for the community.
A Romanesque building, together with the scenery where it is located, form a surprising set due to its beauty and colorfulness.

Whether you are a single traveler, travel as a couple, family or group… in Andorra, everything is available to the pilgrim and visitor.
