Andorra: Andorra la Vella (Revisited)

Andorra la Vella is the capital of Andorra, located in a picturesque valley surrounding by high peaks. But that’s where the beauty ends – with a nearly vertical terrain, the town is way overbuilt and busy, full of duty-free shops, hotels, and more shops. Plaza del Poble has an attractive open area with a church and balcony views of the city below. Also here is the historic Casa de la Vall. But other then this, Andorra la Vella is really a letdown, full of construction and traffic, and devoid of any unique food or architecture, or soul.
