    Andorra

    Major Tourist Attractions: Vallnord, Sant Joan de Caselles, Lake Engolasters

    Wedged between France and Spain, Andorra takes the title of one of the smallest countries of Europe with only two roads going in and out. Many visit not only for the rich history, but come in the winter to practice winter sports and the summer to enjoy the hiking trails.

    Nestled in the green valleys of the Eastern Pyrenees, and wedged between France and Spain, Andorra takes the title of one of the smallest countries of Europe. Though Andorra is not a member of the European Union, the euro is the official currency. Even though most Andorran residents can speak Spanish and French, Catalan is the official language.

    Due to the rugged terrain on this side of the Pyrenees, there are only two roads going in and out of Andorra. One to the south, which connects it to Spain and one to the east that winds into France. The latter is a more dramatic and scenic drive as the road winds through the mountain pass of El Pas de la Casa.

    With its duty-free status, shopping used to be one of the main attractants to this little principality. Over the years, things have changed and since Spain and France opened their borders, shopping in Andorra is no longer the bargain that it used to be. Tourists now flock to Andorra every winter to practice winter sports, and in the summer to enjoy the numerous hiking trails.

    Its rich history has given Andorra a great legacy of Romanesque art. You can learn about Romanesque art while visiting the many eleventh and twelfth century churches around the country. Its simplistic, yet wonderful architecture (tall Lombard-style bell towers and narrow windows) make for great photographic opportunities. Don't forget to go in and admire the Romanesque paintings and stucco sculptures.

    The best way to enjoy this charming corner of the Pyrenees is by turning away from its capital, Andorra la Vella, heading out to the valleys and staying at a mountain stone lodge.

    Here’s is what you can do while visiting Andorra:

    • Go skiing! You can't go wrong at the many ski resorts that populate Andorra. To skip the crowds, the resort of Arcalis is one of the prettiest and least visited.
    • Drive along the CG-3 road and admire the countryside and the views down the valley. When at the end of the road, hike to the mountain lakes of Primer, del Mig and de Mes Amunt for stunning views and to search for alpine wildlife.
    • Visit Sant Joan de Caselles (dated 11th century), one of the loveliest Romanesque churches in Andorra. You’ll find it sitting just above the village of Canillo.
    • Get your adrenaline rushing by canyoning at Llavorsi.
    • Spend a day at Caldea, one of Europe's largest recreational spas, where you can relax in their numerous jacuzzis, waterfalls, outside thermal lagoons, as well as an Indo-Roman bath.
    • Shop at the many discounted outlets in Andorra la Vella.
    • Try their artisan cheeses and cured meats.
