At first sight you may be forgiven for thinking that you are looking at a very modern cathedral. Up to a point, you are not far out: although not a church, Andorra´s emblematic landmark, La Caldea is certainly a temple to health, fitness and beauty.

The structure

The impressive futuristic structure, entirely covered with mirrors is the creation of French architect Daniel Gelabert Fontova. Andorra, the tiny state high up in the Pyrenees between Spain and France is blessed by several thermal springs. Making use of the healing waters, La Caldea came into being, offering a huge array of different indoors and outdoors pools, every imaginable kind of water treatment from Aztec to hamam, beauty treatments, massages, shopping, cafes and restaurants.

The idea of the many mirrors was to reflect the characteristics of Andorra, mountains, gray stone, woods and snow. The surrounding landscape is reflected in the mirrored surfaces and so is, in winter, the snow.
In the evenings, La Caldea also offers a spectacle called Mondaigua, a multi media extravaganza telling the story of water with actors, fireworks, water plays and much more.
It is the biggest thermal spa in the mountains of Europe and an experience which will never be forgotten.

Where to stay in La Vella/Andorra?

 

A great choice is the Andorra Park Hotel, just a few steps from La Caldea in the center of town. Each room has a balcony with mountain views and the health and beauty experience can continue in the fabulous hotel with it’s own in- and outdoor pool, gym and wellness center.

Shopping is an important pass time in Andorra because of it’s duty free status and you are only half a mile from the biggest shopping center when staying in the Andorra Park Hotel.
