Casa de la Vall Andorra is one of the most symbolic monuments in the Principality. Learn more about its history and how you can visit it.

History, beauty, political importance... There are lots of reasons that make Casa de la Vall one of the most symbolic monuments in Andorra, if not the most. It’s located in the heart of the old town of Andorra la Vella and can be visited. Here’s description of the most important parts of its history, as well as the most interesting parts of its interior and exterior.

A little history

Casa de la Vall was built in the late 16th century as a manor house for the Busquets family, on a rock overlooking the valley of the River Valira. In 1702, its purpose changed: it was acquired by the Consell General, the Parliament of Andorra, and used as its headquarters until 2011. Representatives of the country’s parishes convened there, and it also acted as the seat of justice. In 1962, it underwent a major renovation to improve its physical condition, gave a sense of unity to the building, while also providing it with a better main session room. In 2011, the Consell General moved to a new building, also in Andorra la Vella.
