Escaldes-Engordany is the second most populated parish in the Principality of Andorra.

This parish is formed by two urban centres, originally separated. Engordany, the oldest one, was already inhabited in the 1st century B.C mainly inhabited by ranchers and peasants; but little by little arrived craftsmen specially dedicated to wool, what originated the appearance of a new industry in Escaldes.


From the 1930s Escaldes-Engordany has grown quickly. This comú has always been linked to the use of hot water, as it housed the first spa hotels in the country, as well as to Caldea, the most important thermal centre in the country. In the last decades its commercial tourism has also increased a lot.
