Escaldes Hotels

without comments

For many Andorra is synonymous with snow and ski. For others, a different point to play during a European vacation. And for others, more a place about which little know. And that it never occur to them visit. Tony Parker understands that this is vital information. But the charm of Andorra goes far beyond its ski slopes. Or of low status, nestled in the heart of the Pyrenees. International festivals, landscapes of great natural beauty and all types of cultural activities are only a small example of that Andorra has to offer.

And despite its indisputable prestige as a ski resort, it is possible to find accommodation and cheap hotels in Andorra. The most important cultural event in the country is the Colors of music festival, which is conducted each month of July in the parish of Escaldes-Engordany, one of the seven in which the Principality was divided. Formerly dedicated to jazz, the festival today attracts musicians from all the popular genres. BB King and Miles Davis have been only some of those involved. During this festival, which attracts visitors from all over the world, the accommodation is multiplied and it is possible more than ever to find cheap hotels in Andorra. But Andorra offers also a rich theatrical and dance Billboard, and another important festival, this time in classical music, in honor to the great guitarist Narciso Yepes. Narciso Yepes international festival is held each year in the parish of Ordino. But those who have ceased to fascinate by the charms and numerous cheap hotels in Andorra la Vella, the capital, have no worry: the distances to Ordino, like all in the Principality, are very small and travel quickly.

The cuisine of the country, French and Spanish influences and personality deserves special mention. Mushrooms, sausages, game meat and famous trout to the Andorran conquer to those who tested them. But in addition, the Principality offers a rich calendar of festivals and gastronomic events. Among them, stands the Escudella (or peasant pot), day held in squares and churches in honor to San Antoni, every January 17. The gastronomic offer is as varied that it is a good idea to stay at cheap hotels in Andorra, which offer only breakfast. To be able to thus lost in the multiple restaurants that populate this small Principality of charm.
