Do you only have one day to break from the routine? You’ll be surprised by how much you can see and do in Andorra in just one day. We suggest some ideas for having a fantastic day and seeing why our summer days are longer than 24 hours.
Shopping, culture, gastronomy, relaxation…. You choose what you’re in the mood for!
Andorra la Vella
Andorra la Vella
If you arrive early to Andorra, you can start off with a half day on the tourist bus. It’s a good way to see the country in comfort and not miss anything. You can choose from seven itineraries that visit all the parishes of the Principality with different themes, but with one thing in common: the scenery.
At mid-day, find yourself in the city centre of the capital, Andorra la Vella, or in Escaldes-Engordany. You can choose from their many restaurants to have a good lunch.
In the afternoon, relax at the Caldea spa centre, the largest of its kind in southern Europe. Its facilities include extensive water circuits and many different options for massages. If you’re travelling as a family, there’s also the Likids space, exclusively designed for the relaxation of children. When you leave Caldea you can take a stroll down the capital’s high street, where you’ll find a great variety of stores and shopping centres to treat yourself to a purchase or two.
But if shopping isn’t on your list of activities, perhaps you’d like to visit some of the museums, sculptures and monuments that you’ll find along the high streets. The Carmen Thyssen Museum, Casa de la Vall, the CAEE, the Perfume Museum, or some of the open-air sculptures are just some of the options for adding an extra dose of culture to your day.
If you still have some energy left, you can head to the historic centre of Andorra la Vella to get a bite for dinner, either tapas, a homestyle menu or a good savoury crepe. Summer nights are perfect for taking a walk down the narrow streets of the old quarter while enjoying a live concert, a play or a dance performance in the street.
On the route 5 we will leave Andorra la Vella for Escaldes-Engordany .
Opened in 1994, Caldea is a pioneering centre in spa leisure.
Kids now have their own exclusive spa at Caldea: Likids.
Andorra is tailored to your shopping needs . Everything you're looking for—and much more—is just a stone's throw away.
