A land of life and of passing, the rich history of Andorra through the mists of time.
From the end of the last ice age, changes in climate have tended to make temperatures warmer and the air more humid. Research into large animals such as the bears of the Epipalaeolithic age (9800 BC) in Balma de la Margineda has shown the presence of man in the Valleys of Andorra at that time. A presence that has been maintained to our day and which has left vestiges in the geography of our valleys.
In the Middle Ages with the rise of Christianity, Roman art appeared in all its splendour. Nowadays, we can admire the many Roman chapels and churches in all the parishes of Andorra with masterpieces like Sant Joan de Caselles, Sant Martí de la Cortinada, Santa Coloma with its round tower.
Later, with the advent of iron, many foundries emerged, forges that you can still visit and see in action; the Rossell Forge is one such example.
In the museum houses such as the Casa Rossell, the Casa Rull or the Casa Cristo we can learn about the lifestyle of the Andorrans in a different age.
There are other museums like the Tobacco Museum and the Automobile Museum with unique pieces on display are also worth a visit.
The Andorran parliament, the Casa de la Vall, is a cultural visit that should not to be missed.
Cultural life in Andorra is not limited to monuments and museums however; Andorra also has traditional festivals, exhibitions of contemporary art and music … in short it is a living country.
