SHOPPING IS A WONDERFUL PERK FOR OUR VISITORS

Browsing shops in Andorra is one of our country's great activities, both for Andorrans and visiting tourists alike. The variety of shops and shopping centres allows any customer find what they are looking for, be it fashion, accessories, perfumeries, electronics, sports, opticians and so much more. And all shops stock world-leading brands. Furthermore, the Principality has a low taxation policy reflected by its prices: products on sale in our country are significantly cheaper than in neighbouring France and Spain.

However, although Andorra adopted the euro as its currency in 2014, it should be noted that we are not a member of the European Union. Therefore, the number of products you can take across the border on your trip home is limited. This is known as a duty-free and on this page you can find further information.

Another thing that makes shopping in our country more attractive is the long opening hours and business-day calendar. Generally, shops in Andorra are open until 8:00 pm from Sunday to Thursday, whereas on Friday and Saturday, this is extended to 9:00 pm. During holiday periods (Easter Week, Carnival, etc.), some shops, stores and shopping centres stay open until 10:00 p.m.

Regarding holidays in Andorra, the calendar is very kind to consumers: shops only close four days a year! These are national holidays, which are:

  • 14th March: Constitution Day
  • 8th September: Nostra Senyora de Meritxell, patron saint of Andorra
