Andorra la Vella

Andorra la Vella
The Essential
Capital of the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, as it is officially known, the town is a commercial centre which is busy, noisy and frequented by lots of traffic. Away from its shopping avenues teeming with visitors here to buy duty-free goods, the heart of Andorra la Vella has retained its narrow streets and a few old houses. The Casa de la Vall, in Carrer de la Vall, is one of the principality's oldest buildings. Built in 1580, it is nowadays the seat of Andorra's Parliament and Palace of Justice.
