Andorra la Vella is the capital of the Principality and the city that names the parish that includes the villages of Santa Coloma and La Margineda. Despite being the smallest, it is also the most populated city. As a business, financial and administrative center, a large part of the administrative, economic and social activity of the country is carried out there.
It is with good reason that the greatest demand for both rental and purchase of apartments can be found there, being undoubtedly a very attractive factor among investors. Due to the limited extension of the territory, the sale offer of exclusive properties, such as chalets and luxury penthouses, is lower; however, the demand is increasing.
Nestled in the valley formed by the basin of the Valira River, Andorra la Vella is protected from the inclemency of the wind by the imposing mountains that surround it, which embellish it with beautiful green tones of the pine forests and Andorra's native flora. With no doubt, it is a comfortable, fresh and beautiful scenario where to live.
As in other villages of the country, the government and the local administration have worked and continue to work hard in improving circulation, diverting traffic to the periphery or through spectacular tunnels that cross the mountain and connect the Andorra Vella capital with the neighboring parish of La Massana.
