More than 1,500 shops and first class shopping centers make up one of the most important shopping destinations in Europe: Andorra. In the Principality one can find practically everything that passes through the imagination and, in addition, at prices quite cheaper than in France or Spain. One of the advantages is that in many articles it’s not necessary to pay taxes if the purchases do not represent an expense higher than 900 euros.
Jewels, perfumes, the latest technology, typical foods and gourmet products, fashion and accessories or musical instruments…. Andorra is the paradise of the Three Wise Men, the best place to find the ideal gift at affordable prices and with certified quality guaranteed. The best shops are concentrated mainly in the heart of Andorra la Vella, in the famous Meritxell avenue, a street that has a special atmosphere during shopping hours.
The stores follow each other, so that if they joined, they would form a great commercial walk for miles and miles. Lights, shop windows and posters of offers are the stamp that welcomes those who come to Andorra to make their purchases. At a glance you will find dozens of bargains on products that in Spain would be out of your budget. Of course, it is very important to devote time, ask all the details and compare prices since from one store to another the price differences can be substantial.
Another of the great shopping streets of Andorra is the Carlemany avenue, in the area of Escaldes – Engordany. In this great shopping stroll you can find some of the best perfumeries and jewelers, but above all, the gastronomic mountain food stores stand out.
Gastronomy shops have become fashionable in recent years and have spread to the main towns and mountain villages of the Pyrenees, being the most recommended for their variety and quality of those in the valley of Ordino and Escaldes – Engordany. Typical drinks and products are mixed with exotic ingredients and traditional foods from French and Catalan cuisine.
