Canillo is a small village in the north-east of Andorra, close to the border with France. It’s an unassuming place, with a few small streets lined with traditional stone houses, a few churches and a couple of bars. But what makes Canillo special is its location. Nestled in the Pyrenees mountains, it’s the perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of the world. The ski resort of Grandvalira is just a few minutes’ drive away, and there are plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails in the area. In the summer, the village comes to life with a series of festivals, including a traditional Andorran horse race.
