Andorra or the Principat d'Andorra is a small landlocked Country located in the eastern Pyrenees and bordered by Spain and France. It is the sixth smallest nation in Europe and its capital (Andorra la Vella) is the highest capital city in Europe. The official language is Catalan, although Spanish, Portuguese, and French are also commonly spoken.
The Principality was formed in 1278. The role of monarch is exercised jointly by the two co-princes, the President of the French Republic and the Bishop of Urgell, Catalonia.
Andorra has become an important tourist destination. Andorra has several major ski resorts, including Soldeu/El Tarter and Pal/Arinsal. These are very popular with tourists from Spain, France and the United Kingdom, particularly because their relatively gentle slopes are ideal for less experienced people as well as families. Andorra also has many hiking trails which can be explored during the summer and fall months (when Gayle and I were here).
Gayle and I enjoyed our time here in Andorra, especially when we stayed in the Mountain areas and out of the Commercial Valley. I especially loved our drive along the windy roads above Pal that took us to the Spanish Border. There were also cows, 2 bus loads full of French Tourists (who stopped at a Mountain Spring for a drink), bare ski areas in preparation for the next season, a gravel road not taken (down to Spain), and storm clouds on the horizon. In fact, that night was the only time it rained (or snowed at higher elevations) during our Trip. We also took a separate road up to the Arsinal Ski Station and enjoyed that view.
