Santuario de Meritxell reviews
Well worth a visit.We are not usually "into" visiting religious buildings but this one was certainly a pleasant surprise.We were there on a warm summer afternoon and spent a couple of hours wandering.... more »
Probably the most famous church in Andorra. It is interesting for its importance, history and architecture. Very nice is a gallery of 3D models of the most famous stone churches in Andorra. more »
Such a nice setting. A real sense of tranquility, beautiful views and great architecture. A must visit village only minutes of the main road.
Breathtaking location where old ( really really really old) meets new .. the architectural concept is great and the athmosphere is relaxing and peaceful... one star missing as there is no chance for English/ German speaking people to follow - there are quite some explaining posters/text but all in a language I don’t understand at all ( some copied papers would do great .. and it would be a Full Five Star)
