Casa Cristo Ethnographic Museum in Encamp forms part of the Andorra Rural Habitat Circuit. It's a clear example of the way of life in a humble Andorran house from the late 19th and the first half of the 20th century. The Casa Cristo in Encamp is a simple building in the old quarter. It has three floors with rooms with dividing walls, full of little details of daily life: the tools polished for use, the stone sink, the antique baptismal dress, the secret drawer where the mistress kept a corner with money, etc. A full example of the hard conditions of life in the mountains for peasants without land, who often had to emigrate to France and Spain to be able to survive.
