une paroisse qui a le mieux réussi à préserver et respecter l'environnement
naturel. À 1 300 mètres d'altitude, couvrant une superficie de 85 km2, où 33%
sont de la terre et de la forêt, avec une population de 4 000 habitants, le
paysage constitue une valeur unique. Sans aucun doute, Ordino représente un
exemple d'intégration de la nature dans la société contemporaine à travers la
division du territoire en huit communes : Ordino Sornas, Segudet, Ansalonga,
Cortinada, Llorts, Arans et Serrat. Ainsi, les traditions et les coutumes de la
vie rurale coexistent avec un tourisme de qualité conçu pour toute la famille. La ville
d'Ordino détient deux des plus importants musées d'Andorre dans le cadre du
patrimoine national. La Casa Rossell qui a donné vie à Antoni Fiter i Rossell,
auteur du Manuel Digest qui recueille les usages et les coutumes d'Andorre, et
la Casa Areny-Plandolit. Le musée est vaste et offre quelques joyaux
artistiques, comme les peintures romaines, qui sont conservés dans l'église de
Sant Marti Cortinada.
