Andorra la Vella is the capital city of the principality of Andorra. It is the nicest city in the country for shopping and strolling around in the streets of the old town.

Andorra la Vella: what to do?

Andorra la Vella is a dynamic city and a shopping capital. You'll find a plethora of shops selling goods for very decent prices. If you're after some culture, head for the far end of Meritxell street (one of the biggest shopping streets in the city), where you can admire the oldest parts of Andorra la Vella.

Andorra la Vella is the capital city of the principality. It is located right next to Escaldes-Engordany, where you can find the famous leisure centre Thermal Andorran de Caldea.

Reminders

Andorra la Vella is the capital city, which is why it is home to all of the national institutions.

To avoid

Don't critique Catalan; it was chosen as the official language of the principality of Andorra in 1996 and the residents are proud to live in the first UN-recognised country to have Catalan as an official language.

Andorra la Vella: what to eat?

The local cuisine is a subtle blend of French, Spanish, and Catalan influences. The Catalan specialities will introduce you to new flavours. Try the 'boles de picolat' (Catalan meatballs) or the 'rosta'; you won't be disappointed! Most Andorran dishes are simple and prepared with local meat and vegetables.

Andorra la Vella: what to buy?

Tobacco, alcohol, perfumes, luxury and mass-market consumer goods are all sold at very attractive prices.
