Andorra is a small principality in the Pyrenees between France and Spain of only 468 km2 and consists mostly of mountains. It is the last independent territory of the so-called Marca Hispanica (Spanish marks), the buffer states founded by Charlemagne to stop and prevent the Muslim Moors from entering Christian France.

Tourism and tax haven

Andorra is a prosperous country that is mainly dependent on tourism and its status as a tax haven. Around 9 million tourists visit Andorra annually, most of whom are attracted by Andorra's duty-free status and the many things there are to do during both the summer and winter. Most Andorrans live from tourism. Andorra is popular among hikers and those seeking peace. The country has the following form of government. The country has a parliamentary democracy with two co-princes as heads of state. One of these co-princes is the French head of state, the other is the bishop of La Seu d'Urgell, a Spanish town. Their role is almost symbolic. The official language is Catalan.

Andorra la Vella

The capital of Andorra is Andorra la Vella. The city has an old city center with authentic streets and historic buildings. Visit the centuries-old churches Église de Saint-Estève with beautiful wooden decorations and the Iglesia de Santa Coloma. One of the city’s’ most famous sights is Casa de la Vall, which was a residential house in 1580, but has been occupied by the Parliament of Andorra since 1702. Andorra la Vella also has a modern area with luxury shops and shopping promenades. You can buy tobacco and alcohol duty-free here because Andorra is not a member of the European Union. Please note that there are limits on how much you can bring back to other countries that are a member of the European Union. Also walk over the Paris Bridge which has "Andorra la Vella" written on it in large letters. A little further along is the famous bronze artwork made by Salvador Dali that symbolizes the passage of time. You can also see the large 80m high glass spire of Caldea, the largest wellness centre in Europe with 18 floors, from afar.
