14 Photos That Will Make You Want to Explore Andorra

Andorra might be one of the smallest countries in the world, but it is certainly high on the list of the most picturesque. Located high in the Pyrenees mountains between France and Spain, Andorra is one of the world’s oldest democracies and the world’s only co-principality (the co-heads of state are the President of France and the Bishop of Urgell in Spain). It is also the only country in the world which uses Catalan as the official language.

Andorra is difficult to get to, but it is worth the trip. It is one of the few countries in the world that lacks both a train station or an airport. To get there you have to come by car or bus from Spain or France. The most common route is to fly to Barcelona and take a 3 hour drive through the Pyrenees.

  1. Awesome pictures indeed. This reminds me vacations there 20 years ago, Andorra is picturesque and a great place to take good fresh air.

  2. Those are some great pics, would love to visit Andorra. Those old books looked really cool, bet they are worth a lot of money.

  3. Many countries in Europe do not use the Euro. Andorra does use the Euro, although they are not officially part of the Euro Zone.

  4. Ok, next travel destination sorted!

    Thanks for the fantastic post! Those photos are ridiculously beautiful, and I am seriously going to make a plan to visit Andorra in the coming weeks.

  5. Hi..Andorra is indeed veri pintoresque, nice that you payed it a visit :)
    I do have few little comments. The language is called Catalan, not Catalonian. Catalan is also official in Spain, the particularirty of Andorra is that it is the only official language there. You can find the precise information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_language
    This reminds me that I haven’t been there for a long time :)
    I also like their motto: Andorra, el paĆ­s dels Pirineus (Andorra, the country of the Pyrenees) :)
    Happy travelling!
