History

The Bordes

The word “Borda” is typical of the Pyrenees, and it is commonly used as a geographical term, but the most common refer is to the typical rural buildings made of stone and wood. Bordas were used as haystacks, stables, refuges or store farm implements.

It was common in Andorra a hut outside a house, as opposed to the typical livestock farms that dedicated to the cultivation of land in Catalonia. A hut is a secluded rustic construction that usually consists of two floors and has a slate roof and stone walls. In Galicia and the Basque Country are similar constructions that have been called the “pazos” and “caserios”.

With the passage of time and changes in the lifestyle of the rural areas, many “Bordes” have been abandoned, but thanks to the housing boom of the last century and the beginning of this century, many of these buildings have been reconstructed and have become second homes, small hotels and restaurants, such as the Borda Estevet.
