Escaldes-Engordany


The parish of Escaldes-Engordany has much to offer in terms of cultural activities. Check them out here!

Escaldes-Engordany


One in dealing with its origins as a parish and the other with the granite architecture, the material visible in many of the parish’s buildings.

The historical route is called the Engordany route and goes from the Plaça de Santa Anna to Avinguda del Pessebre. It takes about an hour and shows us the rural origins of the parish and allows us to identify the modern tourist centre of Escaldes. This is a pleasant, interesting route with anecdotes and explanations on the economy, society, politics and culture from the 19th and 20th centuries until today.

The second suggested route, Granite Architecture, gives us the chance to see the history of Escaldes-Engordany through its architecture.

Escaldes-Engordany developed between the 1930s and 1960s and its evolution and path to its segregation from Andorra la Vella is related to different important events in Andorra’s development, such as the birth of spa tourism and the electrification of the country. Of the large number of examples we could mention, we especially have the Casa Lacruz, the work of the Catalan architect Puig i Cadafalch, or the Hotel Valira and the Hotel Carlemany as examples of the first establishments that used spa water to bring in tourists. An essential visit for lovers of historical details.
