The cultures of Andorra

This is the next posting from us about Andorra’s culture. This will really help you when you would like to find out the cultures of this country.

Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra, also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, is a landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.

Andorra’s rich cultural heritage is made up of beautiful Romanesque churches, houses bearing witness to former ways of life, ethnographic museums, thematic routes and millenary traditions that have come through to our days.

The Principality has two national festivals: 8 September, the festivity of Nostra Senyora de Meritxell, the patron saint of Andorra, and 14 March, Constitution day. These two days along with Christmas and the New Year are the only 4 days on which the shops in Andorra close.
