Meritxell picnic area, Canillo, near the church
Location and contact
The Meritxell picnic area, one of the seven designated areas in this parish, is very close to the town centre of Canillo, being situated at the 1.2 km point on the CS250 road. As with the Travenc picnic area, it is equipped with four barbecues for groups, but it does not have tables or seats or water supply, so visitors must bring their own equipment to make best use of this area. There is no parking in the immediate vicinity, although this is available at the end of the Camí Real (CS250 road).
The Meritxell picnic area is located at an altitude of 1,564 metres and is noteworthy for being very close to the church of Our Lady of Meritxell, patron saint of Andorra, which can be reached by following a short path from Prats. The church also has a car park. In the town centre of Canillo you will find shops and other services, such as a petrol station and pharmacies.
Before visiting a picnic site, check its status at the tourist information office of the parish in question.
In the event of an incident, call 112.
