Andorra may be more closely associated with ski resorts, mountains and shopping than with art, but you’d be surprised by the number of art museums and galleries it actually has. In fact, being so closely linked with its neighbour, Catalonia, it’s no wonder this tiny country has artistic inspiration. From small shop-galleries to art centres and important museums, here are Andorra’s top art galleries.

A shop and gallery in one, its name plays on the Catalan word for desire and the English for design. Full of beautiful pieces by both established and up-and-coming artists, it’s a great place to browse or shop for a unique souvenir. You’ll find everything here from sculptures and photography to ceramics, wood and textiles.

Art al Set Galeria

Located in the area of Santa Coloma, Art al Set Galeria opened in 2003 and since then has hosted many different changing exhibitions over the years. It showcases the works of local Andorran and Catalan avant-garde artists, and is more than simply a classic gallery, hosting everything from events and workshops to talks.
