In its streets, museums, churches and natural spaces, you can enjoy and discover its history. According to legend, the country was founded by the Emperor Charlemagne in 805, in recognition of the help given by its inhabitants against the Saracens.
Discover the Romanesque architecture of this small country that houses over 40 churches in this medieval style. Santa Coloma, San Miguel de Engolasters, San Román de les Bons, or San Clemente de Pal are just some of the churches worth visiting. There is also the Romanesque Andorra Interpretation Centre, with excellent pieces from all the churches in the country.
Apart from Romanesque, Andorra has many museums. Among them, the new Thyssen Museum, located in the old “Valira” hotel in Escaldes-Engordany, deserves to be highlighted, home to art treasures from the collection of Baroness Thyssen Bornemisza.
