Historic old town of Andorra La Vella was of deep interest to me. And then I climbed the halfway up a mountain of Pyrenees and looked down at the town of Andorra La Vella.

I went up the lane between these two buildings.

Andorra La Vella is a modern town but has rich nature. I really enjoyed there enough.  And next is Santa Coloma d’Andorra (Santa Coloma church).
