Squeezed between Spain and France, Andorra is a stunning country renowned for its ski slopes and resorts. However, during the summer months when the snow melts, Andorra becomes a hiker’s playground. This tiny country – located in the Pyrenees mountains – is also famous for its Romanesque churches.
Andorra la Vella – the country’s capital – attracts visitors with tax-free shopping at its wide range of mega-department stores in Meritxell Avenue. Located in a green valley, the city makes an excellent base for exploring the beautiful mountain country. Its old town – Barri Antic – is home to the oldest church in the country – Esglesia de Santa Coloma and an elegant 16th-century stone mansion, Casa de la Vall. The nearby Les Escaldes area houses Europe’s largest spa complex – Caldea Spa. With 18 floors, this is also the tallest building in the country. The spa complex is a great place to relax after spending an adventurous day in the mountains.
With plenty of hiking, skiing and other winter-sports opportunities, Andorra makes a perfect choice for nature and adventure lovers.
