The General Council of Andorra is the name of the unicameral parliament of Andorra , often called by the historic name Consell General de les Valls . The General Council is one of the oldest institutions in the country, which has its origins in the meetings held in the mid -14th century on the porch of the Andorran churches to treat the government and the organization of the Valleys.

The council was legitimized on February 11, 1419, based on a privilege signed by Bishop Francesc de Tová at the request of Andreu d’Alàs, and ratified on November 17 of the same year by the lieutenant of the count Joan I de Foix . Consequently, the Council is one of the oldest parliaments in Europe .
