Barcelona, a photo a day

Watery Andorran Wednesday


We went to Andorra last weekend, for the first time ever. And what an absolutely lovely little country this is! For those who don’t know, Andorra is a tiny principality (technically called a micro-state) in the Pyrenees Mountains, between Spain and France. Just over 400 square kilometers, 2 heads of state, the Bishop of Urgell in Spain and the french president, de facto princes of Andorra.
Mountains, water and duty free shopping. Will show you much more about it!
Oh yeah: as in Catalunya, the official language of the country is Catalan. Which means that Andorra is the only independent Catalan country in the world.

  1. Like brattcat, I was thinking your photos make me feel like I'm right there, in a teensy country I've never heard of before!
