Sights and culture
Sant Esteve Church
The city's old town is characterized by old stone streets and houses. The central Església de Sant Esteve (Saint Stephen) church is part of the area that guidebooks often label as a picturesque part of the city. This was built in a Romanesque style in the eleventh century. As mentioned earlier, the old town also includes the country's historic parliament building. Probably the oldest building in the city is another church, dating from the ninth century, of Santa Coloma.
The city is the country's cultural centre, with the Government Exhibition Hall acting as a main theatre and museum. The piazza outside the parliament building is also the location of a number of events, and the town hosts a music festival every winter.

The city is also the centre for the many banks and businesses that thrive from its tax haven status. The state is not a member of the European Union, but has a customs arrangement with the EU, and uses the euro.

시내를 관통하는 발리라강, 강을 경계로 왼쪽은 구시가지, 오른쪽은 신도시로 나뉜다. 나는 구시가지로 가봤다. 가톨릭 국가답게 제일 먼저 성당과 마주친다. 성당 옆 작은 골목 이름처럼 골동품을 팔 줄 알았는데 그림 같은 석조 집과 좁은 골목길 자체가 골동품이다. 안도라에 오는 관광객은 꼭 한번 들린다는 계곡의 집. 1580년 개인 저택으로 지어졌지만 1702년부터 정부가 구입해 사용하고 있단다. 계곡의 집은 뒤에선 1층, 앞에선 3층으로 보이는데 하루에 3번, 예약을 한 사람에게만 개방을 한다. 어렵게 촬영허락을 받았다. 아마도 이곳 촬영이 최초라고 한다. 원래 이곳의 주인이었던 귀족, 부스케츠그 옛날 부스케츠 가족이 쓰던 소박한 나무의자, 작은 조약돌로 만든 양탄자 같은 바닥, 그리고 빛바랜 오래된 벽화까지 그대로 보존돼 있다. 1층은 안도라의 유일한 법정이었던 살라 데 라 후스티시아. 가죽의자엔 원고가 왼쪽, 나무의자엔 피고가 앉았다고 한다. 범죄가 거의 없어 주로 민사재판을 했는데 2000년도까지 법정으로 사용됐다. 위층엔 회의장과 리셉션을 하던 곳이 있다. 지금은 안도라의 역사를 설명하는 장소로 사용되는데 국민의 99%가 가톨릭을 믿는 안도라, 벽면에는 가톨릭을 상징하는 여러 개의 벽화가 걸려있다. 개인적인 용도로 지어졌던 건물인 만큼 부엌도 구비돼 있다. 부엌 곳곳에서 볼 수 있는 주방 물품들. 지금으로부터 500년 전인 16세기의 것이라고 한다. 이 작은 구멍은 바로 아궁이다. 500년 전 그들의 삶이 고스란히 느껴진다. 2층엔 의회인 살라 델 콘셀이 있다. 세계에서 유일하게 국가원수가 두 명인 안도라프랑스 대통령과 스페인의 우르헬 교구 주교가 공동으로 통치한다. 그런데 한쪽에 자리 잡은 큰 돌, 무엇에 쓰는 걸까? 의회 시작 전엔 꼭 미사를 집전했는데, 그때 사용하던 제단이다. 벽장엔 국가의 중요한 문서들이 보관돼 있는데 7개 행정구를 상징하는 7개의 열쇠 구멍이 있다. 각 지역대표가 모두 모였을 때 벽장을 열어, 의회를 개최할 수 있었다고 한다. 오래된 의회제도와 뿌리 깊은 민주주의의 역사를 느낄 수 있었다.
