Andorra La Vella

Andorra La Vella



Andorra la Vella, the capital of Andorra, is filled with tourists from France and Spain who go to shop for goods from Asia and the rest of Europe. The huge mountains in the background can make even the most boutique-packed street seem picturesque.

The Dali Clock Square in the city center features a large melting-clock sculpture from Salvador Dali. The city, which is about 1 mi/2 km west of Escaldes-Engordany, also has some architectural attractions along the narrow cobblestoned alleys of its old quarter, among them the church of Sant Esteve, the Chapel of St. Andreu and the unassuming Casa de la Valls, seat of the Andorran Parliament from the 13th century.

At night, a few discos stay open until the wee hours, but it is generally pretty sleepy in the evenings, especially out of season.
