Above the main doorway is the Busquet family crest which was partially removed to make room for the inscription “Virtus, Unita, Fortoir.” This is the official motto of Andorra and means “virtue united is stronger.”
It was purchased from the Busquets in 1702 by the “Consell General,” which was first created in 1419.
