Encamp has become in recent years one of the parishes of Andorra that has grown the most in population, reaching the record figure of 12.338 people. Much of this demographic growth has been due to the different job opportunities offered by the parish, mainly in the hotel and commercial sector, an aspect that undoubtedly highlights the potential of Encamp as a tourist destination. With a strategic location in the heart of Andorra, the parish of Encamp arrives to establish, with the town of Pas de la Casa, the border with France. In this sense, the parish is located in place with excellent communication because it’s located next to the main road that crosses the Principality and at the same time near the center of Andorra la Vella.
In addition, if you are interested in buying a house or flat in Encamp, the large extension of the parish of Encamp allows you to find a wide variety of real estate opportunities, from rustic and modern chalets to new construction flats and penthouses.
Although Encamp stands out for different aspects (natural environment, access to basic services, excellent communication with the rest of the country), during the winter months, the main urban center of this parish becomes, thanks to Funicamp, an important attraction pole for lovers of skiing and snowboarding.

For this reason, especially if you are a lover of alpine skiing or snow, buying a house in Encamp is always an excellent option to enjoy, during the 5 months that the station is open, your favorite sport.
