External and inside lighting of the Casa de la Vall


In December 2000, new external lighting was installed to enhance the beauty of the Casa de la Vall, probably Andorra’s most iconic historic building. Inside, moreover, the lighting in several rooms was also modernised: the Council Chamber, the Hall of Lost Steps, the Office of the Syndic, the entrance hall and the stairs up to the first floor. The mural paintings and altarpieces located in these areas were highlighted, using fibre optic equipment that does not alter their pigments. An ambience appropriate to the particular characteristics of each room was also achieved. Indeed, two lighting levels were installed in the Council Chamber: one suitable for use during the working sessions of the General Council, the other more appropriate for visits, highlighting the heritage aspects of the chamber.
