A Journey to the heart of the history of Andorra


Excavations at the Roureda de la Margineda site started in 2007.At that time it was impossible to gauge the magnitude of the structures hidden under the vegetation and rubble just awaiting the archaeologists.

After several digs, the largest archaeological site in Andorra and one of the most spectacular in the Pyrenees has come to light.

It is the first preserved example in Andorra of a piece of concentrated architecture built wholly in stone. The structures and the abundant material collected illustrate, in great detail, daily life in medieval Andorra and remain a unique witness thereof.

The finds have forced us to reconsider some aspects of our country's history in an exciting dialogue between the archaeological remains and the existing documentation.
