Andorra

Andorra officially the Principality of Andorra  is a sovereign landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France. 
Andorra is the sixth-smallest nation in Europe, having an area of 468 km2 (181 sq mi) and a population of approximately 85,000. Its capital Andorra la Vella is the highest capital city in Europe, at an elevation of 1,023 metres (3,356 ft) above sea level. The official language is Catalan, although Spanish, Portuguese, and French are also commonly spoken.


 Incles Valley


The Incles valley is still probably the prettiest valley in Andorra,  unspoiled by ugly buildings, wide roads and traffic. Walking along this valley in spring is like walking though a botanical garden. As the valley is relatively flat, it is an outing for the entire family. Those who want to stop at the end of the valley can have a picnic surrounded by magnificent scenery.  The Incles valley is a "must" and you should not miss this almost magical place.

Andorra la Vella, the capital of Andorra 


 ValCasa de la Vall is a historical house in Andorra la Vella. It is the headquarters of the General Council of Andorra.  It is a heritage property registered in the Cultural Heritage of Andorra.

Ordino is the most northerly in Andorra. The town is the namesake of the Andorran legend El buner d'Ordino, in which a bagpiper from Ordino, en route to a festival in Canillo, is chased by wolves, but frightens them off by playing his instrument.
