This very important historical building in Andorra is probably the most emblematic and beautiful building on the principality (of we exclude some beautiful old churches) worth a small visit to understand better Andorra’s history

We walked around the old city and found this beautiful house/museum that was closed. I now understand it was their first parliament building. The plaza is beautiful and well worth a visit

The Casa de Vall was the manor house of the General Counsel of Andorra that was first constructed in 1580. It was a great place to walk by. The views all around the old home were panoramic and breathtaking.

I thought this big stone building, which dates back to 1580 when it went up as a family residence, was one of the prettiest structures that I saw in Andorra la Vella. And, as a history buff, I appreciated its significance in the city's past....More

A very interesting tour of this historic building comes complete with a brief history of Andorra and its political uniqueness. Be sure to ask about the cabinet with the seven keys!

Although one of the shortest tours I have ever received, it was very informative, interesting and friendly. Casa de la Vall is also worth a visit from the outside!

In the past, this building was the site of the parliament of Andorra. The square where it is located it's very nice too and when I visited it there were an exposition with big pictures on the square.

You can only visit by guided tour and when we went, they only had a limited times for the English tour which meant we didn't get to take a look around. I'm sure it would have been very informative, but it would have been nicer...More

Hi, all I know if you arrive there they will book you on the next English tour. I had only to wait about 30 minutes for the next one to begin.
