Jorge Sanchez (Spain):
During one of my last visits to Andorra, in the times of the Spanish pesetas, when buying some goods were much cheaper than in Spain (not presently anymore), I had a lot of time before taking my bus back to Barcelona.
One of the churches that I most liked in its capital, Andorra la Vella, was the Sant Esteve Church, juts in downtown, besides the commercial centers.
That Romanic style church, apart from being very old (built in the XI century)
Was interesting because a famous architect of the Modernism in Barcelona (Josep Puig Cadafalch), made some works of reconstruction in it.
It was open when I was there, so I could visit it inside and was admired to notice the murals in its walls.
