“Cultural heritage is one of the main testaments to the history, identity and creativity of a country.” (Art. 34, Constitution of the Principality of Andorra).

Among the multitude of cultural and natural assets of Andorra, there are a few that have attained a special status and of which we are particularly proud: The Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley and the Falles of Andorra la Vella. Both are part of the World Heritage List, drawn up by the UNESCO to protect natural and cultural assets.

The Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, which was declared World Heritage in the cultural landscape category in 2004, is a very representative microcosm of the way people have harvested the resources of the Pyrenees mountain range for millennia. The landscapes of the Valley are witnesses not only to climate change on the planet, but also to changes to the economic and social systems of its inhabitants. The area, the only one in Andorra without any roads, is home to several human habitats, in particular the summer settlements of shepherds and terraced fields, stone pathways and the remains of iron casting works
