This talk will be devoted to the description of the recently proposed ANDES facility. The project focuses on the construction of an underground laboratory (1,800 mwe) which will host dark matter, double beta decay and neutrino oscillations experiments. The laboratory will be located adjacent to the Agua Negra road tunnel in the Andean Mountains in San Juan, Argentina, limiting with Chile. Details on the design of the lab as well as the composition of the site will be presented.
