  • Simple church at the historical area. Good to go for a prayer. Walk upwards to the parliament house.  more »
  • This small Romanesque church is located in the historic center of the city of Andorra. It is located in a pleasant environment, but does not have a lot of appeal except its bell tower made of stone. The inside is very clean but its stained glass windows are well colored and the altar is all in gilding.

  • Great spot to take photos and a beautiful spot tucked in the shopping area. Be sure to walk around as it pictures nicely with the mountains behind.  more »

  • Loved the old, vernacular details - and stone structure of the building
  • My wife has been to to Andorra. She loved the country and remembers that while visiting the church shown a choir came in and sang. This was such a happy memory for her.
  • Great place to visit! But it's really cold in winter!
  • Very nice old church!
  • small town with not many things to do

Where to stay in Andorra la Vella
