Tradition, art and folklore merge to reveal Andorran culture.
In Andorra, culture is an intense experience. In fact, the Principality's density of museums per inhabitant is second to none. They are places for learning and leisure, frequented by Andorrans and tourists alike.
Andorra's culture isn't limited to exhibitions, it's present everywhere, on a daily basis, from traditional festivities to everyday customs that are passed on from generation to generation. Summertime is particularly fit for discovering some of its most unique folkloric celebrations, such as the Fallas and Fallaires, declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by Unesco. Held on 23 June, the youth of Andorra la Vella, Encamp and Sant Julià de Lòria make spectacular fireballs to celebrate Saint John's day and the summer solstice.
You can also admire Romanesque architecture, either among the streets of our cities or amidst nature, as there are more than 40 churches in Andorra dating from Medieval times and built in this style. Santa Coloma, Sant Miquel d’Engolasters, Sant Romà de les Bons and Sant Climent de Pal are just a few representative examples of this architectural style, which can be found in every one of the Principality's parishes. The Romanesque Andorra Interpretation Centre is located near the latter and holds magnificent pieces from churches all around the country.
While most of these churches are still devoted to religious purposes, to truly get to know the most spiritual facet of Andorra visitors should visit the modern Santuario de Meritxell Basilica, devoted to the patron saint of Andorra. The basilica mentioned above, as well as the most remarkable Romanesque churches in the country, are along the route of the Tourist Bus, which is a good way to effortlessly discover Andorran culture.
The Falles, the summer solstice fire festivals, are a tradition included since 2015 on UNESCO's List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
In Andorra there are exhibitions and educational centres to suit everyone. The Thyssen Museum—one of the latest additions to our cultural offer—, housed in the old Hotel Valira in Andorra la Vella, holds important works of art belonging to the collection of Baron Thyssen Bornemisza and his heirs.
Andorran museums don't focus solely on art, but cover a wide range of interesting matters that will please all kinds of visitors. The automotive world, for instance, is the subject of the Motorcycle Museum and the National Automobile Museum. The Rural Habitat, on the other hand, is an interesting proposal to discover the customs and way of life of our ancestors, while the Tobacco Museum covers the tobacco industry and its history. Perfume, miniature models and comic books are other themes that have museums of their own. The centres mentioned above, as well as many others, are covered by the PassMuseu discount card.
