Andorra has been and continues to be the ideal destination to combine shopping with any activity related to nature. Andorra offers a wide range of shops with high quality products and competitive prices. Prices today continue to hold a significant differential with the same products that are in Catalonia, Spain and / or France for its low tax which stood at 4.5% from 1 January 2013.
The majority of shops are located on the main streets of Andorra la Vella (Avinguda Meritxell) and Escaldes-Engordany (Avinguda Carlemany). In fact, in the latter town you’ll discover a stretch of the main avenue where only pedestrians circulate. Vivand was conceived as space commerce, leisure and culture for pedestrians.
In recent years, however, have also gained strength in the areas adjoining the central shopping areas, such as the historical center of Andorra la Vella and Prada Ramon, an area where there is a large offer of clothing and accessories, perfumes and cafes and restaurants regain strength between shopping and buying. In addition, note that the area of Prada Ramon also has three municipal parking.
Pas de la Casa is one of the places where the practice of shopping is quite common. One of the best options if you are staying in hotels located closer to the border with France. Department stores, perfume, fashion, ski equipment, jewelery and a long list of options is what you will find in Pas de la Casa.
One of the things to know when buying is that Andorra does not belong to the European Union. That’s why there are certain limitations with respect to products and sums can go through customs back to the country (customs exemptions) (http://www.duana.ad/franquicies). Just for example, in industrial products, such as computers, televisions… you can not exceed 900 euros per adult.
