Andorra The Dream Destination for Your Vacation
Andorra is a speck of a country hidden between France and Spain in the eastern Pyrenees mountains. Its charming villages and hamlets – dotted along the main road that traverses the country – are filled with Romanesque churches and houses, built in a unique, local style and preserved through the country’s seclusion.
Today, tax exemptions and good tourism infrastructure lend to it being a popular holiday spot which draws more than 10 million visitors each year.
This is the place to go to rag it down some of the finest slopes in Europe: the resort of Grandvalira, for example, claims to be the largest ski area in the Pyrenees, and has over 5000 acres of mountain to take on and one of the top 10 international ski mountains to hit in 2015. Politicians and royalty of Spain choose Andorra’s white peaks for their skiing holidays.
