Hotel Parador Canaro, an establishment with a long history and tradition in Andorra
In 1968 Mr. Josep Farré converted an old Borda (construction to keep save cattle in mountains) into a restaurant with 5 bedrooms. It was the first Parador Canaro. The word Parador is used to refer to a place to stop and to stay, in the way of merchants, farmers and other travelers.
Mr. Farré, a great entrepreneur, created in 1968 a ski area for beginners with a ski lift which was called Canaro, right next to the Hotel Parador Canaro.
In 1976 was installed the first snow canon around the Pyrenees.
In 1980 Parador Canaro renewed. 5 bedrooms extended to 18.
In 1981 owners carried out a new expansion. This time centered in ski slopes, new trail and ski lift was inaugurated, it was called Pedrico.
In 1991, 16 automated snow guns were installed around 2 ski slopes.
A few days later, in 2000, the ski area was extended to 3 hectares.
Finally, in 2009, a complete renovation has done in the Hotel Parador Canaro reaching its current appearance. It has 64 comfortable rooms with magnificent views over slopes of Ski Parador Canaro and surrounding mountains.
