Starting point: Col·legi Sant Ermengol road and Tarragona avenue, respectively. The town square: this is a surprisingly peaceful place with a panoramic view of the Valley of Andorra. You can visit the spa / sauna / swimming complex known as the Caldea. It is located at the top of the town in the large glass spire structure. Parliament building and old town. The parliament building is a relatively modern building and you can walk around up the hill behind it and go onto the roof where there is a type of mini park. On a nice day, there is a great view out over the valley across and looking South towards Santa Coloma. From here you can head back up the hill slightly to the right and visit the old church of St Esteve. Behind it, is an interesting little area filled with narrow streets which is clearly the original location of the settlement.
