Facing onto the bay that extends between Capo Mele and Capo Cervo, it used to belong to the marchesi di Clavesana, who chose to make their home at Borgo Castello: the latter comprises the church of Santi Giacomo e Filippo in late Romanesque style, the tower that served as the entrance to the castle and, on the top of the hill, the little church of San Nicolò, the “Paraxu” or residence of the Genoese governor and the remains of the polygonal castle with its fortifications. Other relics from the medieval period include the large Romanesque bridge with its ten arches spanning the Merula River, a fountain and a number of small lookout towers to guard against raids by Barbary pirates on the surrounding hills. An important seaside resort with a marina that can accommodate 670 boats, Andora has embraced the tourist industry and expanded all its structures, with particular emphasis on sports facilities: the town offers courses in swimming, sailing and windsurfing, along with tennis courts and riding schools. One of the most interesting events of the year is the summer program of concerts known as the Estate Musicale Andorese.
