A good chance to learn about the life of ordinary Andorran families at the turn of the 20th century. Very engaging tour given by the guide Robert. A short but worthy visit.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Cal Cristo. The house is a time capsule which is well worth seeing. The guide was a true professional and she really made the tour something special. The rescued dog at the front door is sweet too.
