Maybe you've never heard of the Tamarros before, maybe you have. They are mischievous creatures, half legend and half popular imagination, who live in their own peculiar world and are very difficult to see. The Tamarros protect the nature and the forests of Andorra and they only come out of their world when we need them.
Andy, one of them, is entrusted with the protection of the natural environment of Andorra la Vella. He has a magic portal, hidden in the very forests he protects.
His sworn enemy is Dirt, an evil troll who does everything in her power to damage and destroy Andorra la vella’s precious mountains, lakes and forests.
Fortunately, Andy is here to help! And so are the Tamarros of the six other parishes!
But every now and again, they need our help. To make sure that the portals they use to access our forests work, we need some children to place a little round stone by them. If there are no stones, the portals won't open and the Tamarros won't be able to get into our world to help us.
If you’d like to give us a hand, finding the portals is really easy because each one is shaped like a Tamarro. If you do find them, you’ll get a reward too!
You'll find all the information you need to find the Tamarros at the tourist information offices in Andorra.
If your kids like sport, take them to shoot some hoops on Plaça del Poble, or to 360º Extrem, Andorra’s indoor freestyle sports centre.
