    Romanesque Bridges - St Antoni and La Margineda

    by DSwede Written Aug 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Andorra has many old villages and buildings, but none date back past the Roman times.

    There are two (if not more) Roman foot bridges that still exist in Andorra, but most people will go right past them without knowing. They only take a few minutes to visit and cost nothing.

    Pont de La Margineda - of the two bridges, this one is the higher, longer, wider span. (see the second photo)

    Pont de Sant Antoni - the smaller of the two bridges, only ~1m wide and ~10m long. But in my opinion the nicer of the two. (see first picture) The background is still more or less natural mountains and rocks. Pont de la Margineda is being encroached by modern construction and roadways.

    Cultural Center

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It looked like they have a few exhibits here, but use it more to coordinate dance contests and stuff. If you are in Andorra la Vella, stop in and take a look, you might see something interesting. Then again, you might not.

    Have a walk by the country side

    by davidlop Written Apr 11, 2005

    There's hundreds of romanic small churches spread along the Pyrenees; Andorra is a place with many that still keep all the walls and roofs standing up. Beautiful in spring, with the green grass surrounding them and the blue sky limiting your sight... I will try to get a picture on that season, today there was no blue sky nor green grass... :-)

    The Monastery at Meritxell

    by dlandt Updated Mar 23, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just outside of the small town of Canilo is the monastery at Meritxell. Two turns up the road and you will find the primary center of worship in Andorra. The main building is a tranquil, dark stoned and modern affair,which also houses the Madonna of Andorra. The overview is magnificent.

    Ordino, a very picturesque litte town

    by wadekorzan Updated Feb 16, 2005

    Ordino is located on the main road going north from Andorra La Vella towards the ski resort called Arcalis. It is a very pretty little town, worth a stop for its old stone houses and for the Church of St. Martin. Inside the church, there are some beautiful 12th century Romanesque murals worth having a look at.

    Opening hours of the Church of St. Martin: July and August, 10 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 7 pm; September to June, only for masses.

    The Village of Canillo

    by wadekorzan Written Feb 15, 2005

    Canillo was once the most important parish in all of Andorra, until it was replaced by Andorra La Vella. Still, you´ll find one of the biggest ski resorts here, called Soldeu-El Tarter. There is also an Olympic sized ice skating rink here, as well as the picturesque Church of St. John. It´s easy to get to from anywhere in Andorra, since it is in the middle of the country. You can find more information about Canillo clicking here to go to an interesting website.

    Arcalis, in the country´s northwest is beautiful

    by wadekorzan Updated Feb 15, 2005

    Leaving the capital called Andorra La Vella, the road leading north forks either towards France and Pas de la Casa, or to the ski resort of Arcalis in the country´s far north. If you´re holding a map of Andorra in your hands, it might look far, but actually nothing is far in Andorra since it is so small. The drive to Arcalis takes you through the picturesque Ordino area, and then winds its way up into the mountains and then ends at Arcalis. It is an absolutely beautiful drive and highly recommendable. You´ll find more information about Arcalis soon in my sporting tips section, since it is a popular ski area.

    Stop to admire the small, stone churches

    by wadekorzan Updated Feb 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The medieval Romanesque churches have a profound meaning for Andorrans. For centuries, these picturesque churches have served as the center of spirtual and community life for the people of the valleys. Their architecture is to be admired, as they are built of local materials, usually of slate or granite, and their strength is symbolic of the Andorran peoples.

    There is a really great website which I highly recommend to visit.

    See the border town of "Pas de la Casa"

    by wadekorzan Written Feb 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a popular ski resort on the border of France. It is right by the main road leading into France, and it really is beautiful! The town itself is full of duty free shops (of course), but also lots of cafes, restaurants, and hotels. It really seemed to have alot of energy and activity and I wished we had stayed here instead of Andorra La Vella. Definitely a good place to stay if you want to be close to the slopes yet still have some town activity.

    Viewpoint "Roc del Quer"

    by wadekorzan Updated Feb 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you drive north from the capital, Andorra La Vella, towards the center of the country, you´ll see this viewpoint on the right. You have to walk a ways from where you park the car (10 minutes), but the view is fantastic. Follow the path as far as you can and then go down to the lower viewpoint for a spectacular view of the valley. This really came as an unexpected surprise to us, because we were just driving and it was so beautiful we wanted to pull over, so did at the first place we could. We ended up spending about an hour here walking and enjoying the different views. There was snow everywhere, but it wasn´t cold as we had brillaint blue skies.

    A beautiful viewpoint

    Drive as many of the roads as you can

    by wadekorzan Updated Feb 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favorite thing about Andorra was the really beautiful mountain scenery. We drove as much as possible, stopping wherever we could to enjoy the scenery or to explore the villages. Don´t just drive through--you actually have to stop and enjoy it. There are places to stop where you can do short walks or hikes, vista points, quaint villages, etc. In January, all the mountains were covered by snow and we had clear blue skies and sun--the scenery was absolutely breathtaking.

    Shopping for booze!

    by Lucy- Written Jan 10, 2005

    We didnt do this, but another couple we met went into the town centre to buy some duty free spirits, they came back with local vodka for only £2 for a large bottle and other international brands from £4 to £6. I wish I had done more shopping there, as it sounded like there were lots of bargains to be had!
