[ING]Casa d'Areny-Plandolit is one of the country's most emblematic museums. 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. Esta casa esta fechada en el siglo XVII, pero la mayoria delas estructuras son de mediados del siglo XIX, momento de maximoesplendor economico de la familia gracias a la figura de Don Guillemde Areny-Plandolit.El mobiliario y el menaje se conservan fieles al estilo de vida de esta familia y a su condicion social, y se exponen todos los objetos de una epoca donde el lujo y los caprichos eran totalmente inexistentes en los valles andorranos. La visita os traslada a la Andorra de los siglos XIX y XX, e incluye un paseo libre por los jardines del recinto, en el que tambien se encontraba el antiguo Museo de Animales Desnaturalizados (1930), actualmente rehabilitado como Auditorio Nacional de Andorra.

There are three 'house' museums in Andorra, Cal Cristo (lower middle class), Casa Rull (middle class) and Casa d'Areny-Plandolit (upper class). The latter is, of course, by the far biggest and best-appointed, with most to see. The one hour guided tour (available in Catalan, Spanish, English & French, cost 5€) just about covers all the main points with time for... More
