Thursday Doors: More Andorra Doors

 

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

For this week’s door post, we continue our tour of Andorra la Vella, the Capital of the Principality of Andorra, or as it’s also called, the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra.

We began the day by stopping to get directions from the friendly guides at the tourist information office.  Just outside the office sat the “Nobility of Time” sculpture by Salvador Dali.

Then we made our way to the hillside Church of Saint Stephen.  A 12th century Romanesque structure.

We walked up to the front door of the church…

And on inside.

Then out again for a lovely view across the courtyard…

    1. There was a cute little cafe at the other end. It certainly has been fun the last couple of months to discover and appreciate the scenery and architecture here in France after many years in Asia (though Asia has its own incredible sights)! =)
