  • The architecture of the granite offers you the opportunity to learn the history of Escaldes-Engordany through its architecture. Escaldes-Engordany was developed between 1930 and 1960 and its evolution and path towards the segregation of Andorra la Vella are related to several important facts for the evolution of Andorra, as the birth of the hot springs tourism and the electrification of the country. Large quantity of examples that we can quote, include the House Lacruz, designed by the catalan architect Puig i Cadafalch, either the Valira Hotel and the Hotel Carlemany as examples of the first settlements involving the thermal water as a tourist attraction. A must-see for lovers of historical details. Lacruz House is a building of homes and business premises of the Andorran parish of Escaldes-Engordany. It is located at number 61 of the avenida Carlemany in Escaldes. The building, designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, is protected as property inventory for its significance in the architecture of granite of the Principality. The construction of the years 1940 and 1941 was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, recognized as one of the exponents of the Art Nouveau in Catalonia movement and first noucentisme. The building is not located within any particular period of its evolution as an architect, but at the stage of the end of his exile (1936-1942). The building synthesized forms of its historical path in terms of management of the facades with the use of local materials, such as granite stone arranged in the form of masonry sawing head or decapitated bee nest, fruit of observation studied buildings nearby and coeval built in Escaldes; as well as the balanced use of architectural resources such as balconies, balconies, windows, grandstands and chandeliers which give the building own uniqueness.
