The origin of Andorra’s roads

TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS

Jul 16, 2015 03:50 PM

The Museum of Electricity regularly hosts temporary exhibitions. The show that is open at present, entitled “Paths to Progress”, is a photographic exhibition on the construction of roads in Andorra. This review ranges from the first attempts to build communications in the Principality to the concession of FHASA, which led to the long awaited construction of the country’s modern road system. The temporary exhibition features a large number of photographs, carefully selected to illustrate, step by step, the gradual construction of roads in Andorra. The images are accompanied by reproductions of the original concession documents, engineers’ notebooks, maps, plans, wage sheets and so on, providing unusual and interesting insight into how people worked in those days. 

Together, all these exhibits enable visitors to understand the great efforts that were made over time to satisfy the country’s need for roads.
