ORDINO, BIOSPHERE RESERVE
Ordino became a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in October 2020, for it is one of the best preserved and unspoiled natural areas of Andorra. The Ordino valley demonstrates how modern society can integrate with nature, being divided into eight communities where the traditions and customs of rural life coexist with state-of-the-art facilities, a sustainable public transport service and high-quality tourism offering hotels and restaurants for the whole family. Its natural landscapes are accessible throughout the year, so these mountains are the ideal place for lovers of outdoor sports to train.

The Casa d’Areny-Plandolit is in the centre of the village of Ordino and is the only example of a stately home in Andorra that has reached our days intact. It dates from the 17th century, but most of the structures of the building are from the middle of the 19thcentury, a time of economic boom for the family. The dining rooms, the noble hall, the music room, the defence elements, the cellars, the library or the chapel reflect the differences with the rest of Andorran society. Come and enjoy “EL SOMNI DE DON GUILLEM” experience: the latest addition to the tour of the museum will allow you to discover Don Guillem’s exciting life with a mise en scène that combines holograms and physical objects which take you on a journey through time.
