Santuario de Meritxell Reviews
Excelente monumento, mejor por la mañana con luz. Santuario dedicado a la patrona de Andorra incluido en una ruta Mariana de 5 santuarios. more »Excellent monument, better in the morning with light. Sanctuary dedicated to the patron saint of Andorra included in a Marian a route of 5 shrines.
Es original con los arcos en pié, es parte de su encanto. Por lo que vimos allí hay visitas guiadas cada 30 minutos. more »It is original with the arches standing, it is part of its charm. From what we saw there there are guided tours every 30 minutes.
Such a nice setting. A real sense of tranquility, beautiful views and great architecture. A must visit village only minutes of the main road.
Breathtaking location where old ( really really really old) meets new .. the architectural concept is great and the athmosphere is relaxing and peaceful... one star missing as there is no chance for English/ German speaking people to follow - there are quite some explaining posters/text but all in a language I don’t understand at all ( some copied papers would do great .. and it would be a Full Five Star)
