Andorra la Vella


Andorran architecture is becoming more and more modern.  New buildings today represent the youngest and most innovative spirit of the country, and the capital is an example of it.

  • París Bridge

This avant-garde design over the Valira River links Avinguda Mitjavila street with Carrer Consell d’Europa street. It was designed by the engineers Leonardo Fernández and Guillermo Ayuso Calle in 2005 and has become a reference in terms of aesthetics and modernity. The bridge is 45m long on the straight section and 27m long on the semi-circular section. It is adorned by two 2.20m diameter steel spheres supported by two triangular structures.

  • The General Council

Set in the hilly landscape, the new seat of the General Council should be mentioned, located under the old Casa de la Vall. Since 2011, it has transformed Andorra de la Vella, creating a junction between past and present, and history and modernity, to continue the historical memory of local people whilst looking towards the future.

Delve into the country’s contemporary history!
