The Princedom of Andorra
FOR CULTURE LOVERS.

The cultural life in Andorra is becoming more active day by day.

The events take place through-out the year mainly due to its permanent infrastructure: the National Auditorium (Ordino), the Government Exhibition Hall (Andorra la Vella), or the cultural centres exclusive to each district.

The musical programs have won international recognition: this is the case of the Ordino musical festival in September, the Escaldes-Engordany jazz festival in July and the Andorra la Vella music: and dance season (October to May).

The quality of exhibitions and cultural shows has also developed noticeably: Andorran prehistory, Romanesque Andorra, international art against 20th century genocides, selections from Andorran painters and photographic exhibitions are all examples of a lively interest in all that is creative.

The traditional culture is publically shown through the Main Village Holidays and festivities brightened Lip by typical dances such as "la marratxa" (Sat-it Julia de Loria), Saint Anne's dance (Escaldes-Engordany) the "contrapàs" (Andorra la Vella); or the "sardana" in the whole country. These dances encourage people to participate, and also they are performed by dancing groups.

Other events on the open air are the "Escenificacio de I'Ossa (Encamp), or the "Judici als Contrabandistes" (Encamp).

Any route can become a wonderful discovery of some romanesque religious architecture.

Chapels, churches and bell towers are scattered over the mountains. Santa Coloma with its cylindrical bell tower, Sant Joan de Caselles with its rusticity, the splendour of the Encamp bell tower, or the tiny chapels in Les Bons or Sant Cerni are a faithful sample. With the Gothic art, the primitive churches filled up with beautifully decorated altarpieces, together with the polychrome wood carvings of Our Lady.

The Gothic boundary crosses in stone, spread all over the territory round up the scenery. The most representative civil monuments are Casa de la Vall, the seat of the Consell General (Parliament) and the Judiciary, and the museum Casa d'Areny Plandolit at Ordino.
