Andorra la Vella, the capital city of the small country of Andorra, perched high in eastern Pyrenees, can be often overlooked on European travel itineraries. However, with its spectacular mountain sceneries (in fact, Andorra la Vella is the highest-altitude capital in Europe), peculiar architectural sites, and plenty of shopping opportunities, this charming city is undoubtedly attention-worthy if you’re planning a trip to the Pyrenean region. Start your Andorra la Vella tour by taking a stroll through the city’s old town, boasting outstanding examples of Medieval architecture; the 11th century Sant Esteve Church, with its fine carved woodwork being one of the main tourist attractions in the city’s historic area. Take a look at the house of Casa de la Vall dating back to the 16th century, with its petite towers and shuttered windows. Its high walls are adorned with remarkable stonework, which formerly served as the home of the country’s parliament. Your trip to Andorra la Vella would be incomplete without admiring the interesting sculptures and statues of the city. Don’t miss the chance to see the renowned Noblesse du Temps (“The Nobility of Time”) sculpture by the genius Salvador Dali. With its low taxes and abundance of shops, boasting a huge selection of goods, Andorra la Velle is also known as one of the best places for bargain shopping in Europe; thus make sure to pay a visit to this lovely city, while in the Pyrenean region.
