Hang on the rocks
When I walked a little bit futher west of the old town, I saw houses hang on high rock cliffs with balconies overlooking the valley down. They were built in typical for Pyrenees style: made of natural stones and rocks, covered by gable roofs and had wooden balconies.
In contrast to vast valleys I have seen in the Alps, the valley of Andorra la Vella is relatively narrow. Thus there is no much space for the next buildings. The other reason for construction edificies higher and higher is air pollution from traffic down in the bottom of the valley. And the views over the mountains and valley from these hanging high in the rocks houses have to be spectacular.

Observation area in the border of the city
Above the parking for busses is a long observation area. Everyone can get there using stone stairs. From the observation area is a great view to Andorra la Vella and mountains.
