The branches of the Spanish postal service open from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., closing on Sundays and bank holidays.
Development of the post office in Andorra
The complexity of the territory and problems of access have always hindered the development of a local postal service.
With the creation of the Spanish postal service in 1716, Andorra managed to maintain postal communication through itstraginers, muleteers who travelled the villages in the Principality and frontier territories, delivering correspondence directly by hand to the nearest branch of the Spanish postal service.
At the start of the 20th century, the building of the first Andorran road in 1913 and the arrival of the first cars in the Principality facilitated the opening of the first branch of the Spanish postal service in Andorra, on 15 December 1927.
