The Museu Iconogrāfic de Sant Jordi i del Cristianisme presents a valuable private collection of around one hundred orthodox religious art works from Ukraine, Russia, Greece and Bulgaria, from the 17th to the 19th centuries, a specialized library and audiovisual documentaries on the main temples of the ortodox church.


Viladomat Museum
The Museu Viladomat holds the most representative works of the Catalan sculptor Josep Viladomat (Manlleu, Spain, 1899 - Escaldes-Engordany, Andorra, 1989), who lived in the Principality since the 1940's and left there his main legacy.


Andorran Model Museum
The Andorran model museum was created by the Uniķ Pro-Turisme (the local tourism board) and regroups a small scale version of the main representative monuments of the Principality. The pieces exposed in the museum are unique, exceptional and incomparable. Most were made by the artist Josep Colomé, a painter and model maker from Terrassa who died in 1995. Now his son, Josep Colomé, continues his father's task and the museum possesses some of his works.


The National Automobile Museum
The National Automobile Museum illustrates the changes that vehicles have undergone since they first appeared, from the steam machine such as the Pinette (1885), the oldest item in the museum, up to the 1970s. About eighty vehicles allow us to see how design has evolved to suit the needs of each period and how the speed and power of each model have been improved. Also exhibited are about a hundred bicycles, an illustration of the challenges that technological advances have met, by transforming the simple, uncomfortable and dangerous vehicle, into a stylish, reliable and practical machine, via a process of selection that has enabled the bicycle of today to be a high-tech and commercial product, apt for a wide range of requirements.



In 1419 an inter-parish organisation was ratified which was to be the embryo of the Council of the Land, later called the General Council of the Valleys of Andorra. Casa de la Vall is the seat of this body which is the national parliament. It is a building distinguished by its historical connotations. The building was constructed in 1580 according to the date on the keystone at the entrance. It belonged to the Busquets family and was purchased by the General Council in 1702. The building has a square ground plan and the interior is divided up by three master walls as is typical in Catalan patrician country houses.


Nicolaī Siadristy's Microminiature Museum
Nicolaī Siadristy, considered the world's best microminiaturists, invites you to visit his permanent museum in Ordino. His works can only be contemplated through a microscope. Is it possible to pass a camel through the eye of a needle? Siadristy passes a whole caravan through it, as well as a palm tree and a pyramid. Other works include a tray complete with a wine bottle and glasses set on a grain of salt, the human being through life, symbolised by a gold thread 400 times thinner than a human hair and many others.
