Andorra la Vella


Andorra la Vella is not just the capital of Andorra, it’s also the highest capital city above sea level in Europe and its superb location in the heart of the Pyrenees mountains makes it one of the greenest, healthiest places on Earth. Apart from the natural beauty of its landscapes, the cultural and leisure options are reason enough to come and explore this amazing city. Here are just a few of the most important monuments in the old quarter of Andorra la Vella, as well as other ideas to explore this beautiful city centre.

Historical monuments in the old quarter of Andorra la Vella

Probably the most emblematic building in Andorra la Vella and the Principality is Casa de la Vall. Built towards the end of the 16th century, from 1702 until 2011 it was the headquarters of the Consell General, the Andorran Parliament, one of the oldest in Europe. Guided tours of Casa de la Vall are available.

As for religious buildings, Andorra la Vella is home to splendid pre-Romanesque and Romanesque buildings that date back to the Middle Ages. In the old quarter you’ll find the church of Sant Esteve. To this day it preserves its Romanesque semicircular apse and bell tower, one of the city’s most important landmarks.

In the centre of Andorra la Vella you’ll also come across other historical buildings, such as Casa Guillemó, a house in Plaça Príncep Benlloch, very close to the church of Sant Esteve. You’ll also see several samples of granite architecture from the first half of the 20th century, such as Casa Felipó, next to the Pyrénées department store, and the old Vilanova clinic in Plaça Rebés.
