Andorra sightseeing. Travel guide - attractions, sights, nature and touristic places

The Principality of Andorra was founded 7 centuries ago. Nowadays, Andorra has become a popular destination and its resorts never cease to amaze guests with their diversity, romantic atmosphere, sophistication and luxury. The town of Ordino remains the most visited place in Andorra. This is a famous ski resort that is also home to numerous places of interest. Visits to museums of Ordino will make your vacation more interesting and diverse. The most interesting museums are Casa d'Areny-Plandolit House, the Miniature Museum and the Museum of Orthodox Christian Icons. The resort was founded in 1982 and it took only few decades to turn from a small village into a modern winter sports center. This is an ideal place for everyone who is keen on active rest and enjoys long walks in nature reserves.
Only one place can conquer with unforgettable landscapes of Andorra – the capital of the principality, the city of La Vella. The city is hidden in one of picturesque gorges high in the mountains. Even in winter you will see green sprouts showing among snow banks and glades with flowers. The city is famous for its countless shops and boutiques, entertainment centres and restaurants. The main landmarks of the principality are as well located in La Vella. Tourists traditionally visit the historical district of la Vella, the Barri Antic quarter. The heart of the district is the location of the parliament house known as Casa De La Vall. This is a fancy looking five-story building which dates back to the 16th century. The construction was stopped soon after the start, so it took more than 300 years to finish the building. Besides that, tourists are advised to visit such landmarks as Seth Panis Castle, Santa Coloma Church and Philatelic Museum.
Arinsal snow resort is usually called the “youngest” resort in Andorra. Arinsal is located not far from the capital. This resort will be a perfect choice for tourists who are not so sure in their alpine ski skills as the town is famous for its sports schools and top class easy grade slopes. This is the best choice for families with children as the resort features several large entertainment centers for children including a ski school for kids and various games for youngest guests of the resort.
