Whilst traveling back to Andorra we came across this Citadel it seemed in the middle of nowhere but we thoroughly enjoyed the time out, I think a great place to visit. More time needed

The fortress is over three centuries old and is a UNESCO world heritage designated site. Given its age, it is in a reasonable state of preservation. The walls, bastions, ditches and the citadel are all in a fine state. The fortress was built in the...More

It's a medieval fortress with its village around it. Although it's not permited to go inside the fortress, the surrounding are very nice and worth a visit.

Nice trip to know a medieval village, very small one including an old fortress, but very picturesque, the mountain views are stunning
