Encamp, heart of Andorra
Encamp is located at an altitude of 1,250 m, and is located in the eastern sector of the country with an approximate area of 82 km2. It limits to the north with the parish of Canillo, to the east it borders with France, to the southeast it borders with Spain, to the south with the parish of Escaldes-Engordany and to the west with the parishes of La Massana and Ordino.

It is the second of seven parishes in the Principality of Andorra in protocol order, it occupies almost 18% of the national territory and is made up of the Encamp, Vila, les Bons, la Mosquera, el Tremat and el Pas de la Casa towns.

Twinned with the cities of Rouillac (France), Mojácar (Spain) and Alghero (Italy), Encamp is a stopping place along the well-known GR11 route, a footpath that follows the southern side of the Pyrenees, from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean and the GR7, the other GR footpath that crosses the Pyrenees from east to south, and which is part of the E4 European long-distance path which goes from Greece to Gibraltar.

Encamp is the gateway to the ski slopes of GrandValira (the largest ski domain in the Pyrenees).

The Funicamp (the longest funicular in Europe) has made Encamp a recognized tourist destination both in winter and summer, as well as a point of interest for activities related to nature. In Encamp we can practice hiking, fishing, climbing, via ferratas, etc. ...

Encamp has positioned itself as a quality sports tourism destination, hosting elite teams at the Encamp Sports and Sociocultural Complex and the Pas de la Casa Sports Center.

Encamp offers a great gastronomic variety, combining the most typical mountain dishes with exotic flavors from foreign cultures. Gastronomy and culture are part of the town’s identity.

The Carnival festivities, Sant Antoni’s escudella, the Festa Major or Christmas are part of the idiosyncrasy of the people of Encampadà.

Encamp has been able to combine tradition with modernity, not only in the cultural field but also in the architectural field. We find Romanesque buildings such as the Romanesque of Sant Romà de les Bons next to buildings built in the 20th century such as the administrative building of the Comú d’Encamp, two styles that coexist in perfect harmony.
