This house dates from the 17th century but most of the building is from the 19th century, when the family's fortune was at its height thanks to the figure of Guillem d'Areny-Plandolit.The furniture and household items are a faithful reflection of the family's lifestyle and social status, showing objects from a period when luxury was far from common in the Andorran valleys. The tour takes visitors back to 19th and 20th century Andorra and includes a free strollaround the gardens, which used to house the Museum of UnnaturalAnimals (1930), now renovated as the Andorra National Auditorium.[ESP]La Casa de Areny-Plandolit es uno de los museos mas emblematicosde Andorra.
