We start the day walking through the narrow streets of the village of Ordino. There, we will enter a manor house to learn about the life of the only noble family in Andorra at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. Afterwards, we will cross the beautiful valley to visit the Romanesque church of Sant Martí (12th century). In the town of La Cortinada, we will also see the mill, the sawmill, and a typical manor house with its unique white dovecote. We will eat in a traditional restaurant and discover the metallurgical industry, which has been the economic driver of Andorra for centuries. We will enter an old iron factory where we will see how they made the ingots and the hard life of those who worked there.
In the morning, we will discover the most emblematic places of the capital walking through the streets of the old town of Andorra la Vella. To understand our peculiar institutional system, we will visit the Casa de la Vall (16th century), the seat of one of the oldest parliaments in Europe. Afterwards, we will visit the church of Santa Coloma (S. VIII-IX), where we will see a spectacular video mapping that reproduces the frescoes that decorated its walls in the 12th century. Then we will go to Espai Columba to discover how the murals were made during the Romanesque period and see the original frescoes of the church of Santa Coloma. Next, we will have lunch in a vintage hotel, wrapped in stories of refugees and smugglers from the wars of the last century.
Today we start with a journey back in time during our walk through Vall d’Incles. Nothing has changed, you can still see the bordes (typical mountain houses) and the scythe fields that surround them. We will eat in a traditional restaurant and visit the Basilica Sanctuary of Meritxell (20thcentury). This contemporary work was commissioned by the architect Bofill after the Romanesque chapel that housed the carving of the Virgin of Meritxell, patron saint of the Andorrans, was burned down. In the exhibition “Meritxell memòria” we will discover the history of this mystical place and the mysterious fire which burned the chapel. Then we will visit an ancient manor house of a humble family to transport us to the end of the 19th century.
At the beginning of the last century, tobacco was a key economic drive of the country. Today we enter a dryer where we will learn more about this type of traditional cultivation. Afterwards, we will climb up to visit Pal, one of the most preserved villages in the country, which houses the imposing Romanesque church of Sant Climent (11th-12th century). We will continue going up to Coll de la Botella to taste a traditional snack with artisanal products of the country while listening to the legends and black stories that surround this beautiful valley.
