Iron sculptures, iron ore mines, rural cottages and incredible landscapes are just a few of the things you'll find at the Ruta del Ferro in Ordino.

La Ruta del Ferro, which translates into English as the Iron Route, is one of the best family excursions that can be enjoyed in our country, and for good reason: not only is it an easy route, but it also combines nature, culture, social sciences and economy. It could be said that it's a visual explanation of one of the most important activities developed in Andorra from the 17th century until the end of the 19th century: the metal industry.

The Ruta del ferro begins in Llorts, in the parish of Ordino. It's a 4.2 km linear itinerary (8.4 km round trip). The first half is downhill and the second half is slightly uphill (126 metre elevation). The path's waymarking is red and white, as it's part of the GR11. The total length of the route is just over 2 hours. The Iron Route can also be enjoyed on horseback, starting in Ransol, passing through the Mina dels Meners mine and ending in Arans.

Ruta del ferro: Main points of interest

As you'll discover while walking along the Ruta del Ferro, the metal industry was an important economic sector until the end of the 19th century. Some of the most important landmarks along the route correspond to different stages of the production process: extraction, transformation and sale.
