Photographer's Note

After a terrible flu that has left me K.O. for some days, today I restart my regular activity here.

While I was taking some photos in the gardens that surround this manor house in Ordino (Andorra), this beautiful young lady appeared, a magnificent puppy of the race Swiss Shepherd, who with her impressive white color, caught my attention and I decided to include her in my composition, in which initially I was trying to catch the splendid architecture of the fortified house.

Information: The House d'Areny-Plandolit is one of the most emblematic museums of Andorra. This house dates back of the XVIIth Century, but the majority of the structures are of middle of the XIXth Century, moment of economic summit of the family because of to the figure of don Guillem d'Areny-Plandolit and his activities related to the iron industry. The furniture remains faithful like living of the family and to his social condition, and there are exposed the objects of an epoch in which the luxuries were not known in the Andorran valleys, and limited to this family, the only one with pertaining to nobility title of the country. The visit moves us to the Andorra of the XIXth and XXth century and includes a free walk along the gardens of the enclosure.

This photo is for you, my friend Christiane.

Despus de una terrible gripe que me ha dejado fuera de combate durante unos das, hoy reinicio mi actividad normal aqu.

Mientras tomaba algunas fotos en los jardines que rodean esta casa seorial en Ordino (Andorra), apareci esta bella seorita, un magnfico ejemplar joven de la raza Pastor Suizo, quien con su impresionante color blanco, capt mi atencin y decid incluirla en mi composicin, en la que inicialmente intentaba captar la esplndida arquitectura de la casa fortificada.

Informacin: La Casa d'Areny-Plandolit es uno de los museos ms emblemticos de Andorra. Esta casa data del s. XVII, pero la mayora de las estructuras son de mediados del s. XIX, momento de auge econmico de la familia gracias a la figura de don Guillem d'Areny-Plandolit y a sus actividades relacionadas con la industria del hierro.
El mobiliario y el menaje permanecen fieles al modo de vivir de la familia y a su condicin social, y se exponen los objetos de una poca en la que los lujos eran desconocidos en los valles andorranos, y limitados a esta familia, la nica con ttulo nobiliario del pas.
La visita nos traslada a la Andorra de los siglos XIX y XX e incluye un paseo libre por los jardines del recinto.
