How is the Ruta del Ferro de Ordino, Andorra?
It is an itinerary that is part of the Ferro de los Pirineos Route. In Andorra, the Ferro Route as it passes through Ordino allows us to discover what the steel industry was like between the 17th and 19th centuries, when it constituted a pillar of the Andorran economy.

Along the Ferro Route you will find the Camino de los Trajineros, La Fragua Rossell, the Llorts Mine, the Romanesque church of Sant Martí de la Cortinada and the Areny-Plandolit House-Museum.
