Ordino is the most northerly parish in the Principality of Andorra. It is also the name of the main town of the parish. It is home to the Sorteny National Park. The town of Ordino lies on the footslopes of Casamanya (2740 m), a mountain which has spectacular panoramic views from its summit being located almost exactly in the centre of Andorra.
The parish has borders with France and also with the parishes of La Massana, Canillo, and Encamp. In the extreme northwest of the parish is the Vallnord (Ordino-Arcalis sector ski station) ski resort which has peaks up to 2,625 m.
The town is the namesake of the Andorran legend El buner d'Ordino, in which a bagpiper from Ordino, en route to a festival in Canillo, is chased and treed by wolves, but frightens them off by playing his instrument.
