My wife and I recently visited Andorra La Vella for the first time and we both loved this city. Andorra La Vella is tucked into a valley between two high mountains and is long but narrow in width. The main shopping area is situated by the river which flows right through the middle of it. And it flows like a torrent. The bridge, Puente de Paris crosses it and is a small bridge that is on a main thoroughfare so there is always traffic and pedestrians.Some reviews were negative regarding the Puente de Paris, but I think they just missed the reason you would stop and check it out. It is a symbol of this beautiful city and it makes a great statement...... The bridge is a nice backdrop to this wonderful city that combines both modern and historic architecture. We both found Andorra La Vella to be a nice change of pace when looking for places to visit. The people were friendly, it was very clean and you always felt safe. No visit here would be complete without crossing and photographing the Puente de Paris.

Among all the modern shopping centers and busy streets there is the historic center of Andorra la Vella, Europe's highest capital city. Though not very extensive it does have some historically important buildings like the old parliament building known as the Casa de la Vall and the Romanesque church of Sant Esteve. There's a certain charm in the cobblestone streets and several small squares that can be found here especially when viewed with the backdrop of the majestic Pyrenees. There's also a few cafes and shops that might interest visitors. I enjoyed strolling the area both at night and during the day,it makes for a nice contrast against all the modern shops which seem to have taken over most of the city.
