Get a close-up look at Andorra’s first chocolate factory
On this delicious visit you’ll discover that Andorra has the right conditions for making good chocolate, due to its cold, dry mountain climate. At Xocland you’ll learn the secrets of cocoa and its beans roasting. You will see what machinery is used and how it is processed to transform it into an intense and pure chocolate, based on 100% natural ingredients.

Guided tours of the factory take place every Saturday at midday in very small groups in order to guarantee the anticovid measures. Advance booking is compulsory.

At the end of the tour, of course, you can taste the chocolate and buy it in the shop.

Take home a souvenir “made in Andorra”.
La Massana is home to the country’s first chocolate factory, open since 2018. Although we are not producers in Andorra, Xocland receives the best cocoa beans from Nicaragua and Venezuela. It then processes them and turns them into bars, chocolates, pralines, truffles or nougats, with up to 90% dark, milk or white chocolate. He also combines them with nuts and other flavours. One of their specialities is xoca: a mixture of different chocolates with biscuits, fruit and other ingredients. Don’t miss out on trying it!

If you are a chocolate lover, you can’t miss this visit to see up close how one of the most popular foods is made. You’ll love it!
