The tiny principality of Andorra nestles at the eastern end of the Pyrenees between Spain and France. Just 468sq km (181sq mi), Andorra has the President of France and the Bishop of Urgell, Spain, as co-princes, largely honorific titles.
Its seven parishes - Andorra la Vella, Canillo, Encamp, Escaldes-Engordany, La Massana, Ordino and Sant Julià de Lòria - are home to 76,000 people. While tourism is the principal industry, Andorra is, like Monaco, a tax haven. It may be no coincidence that Andorrans have the highest life expectancy in the world.
The Pyrenees may lack the soaring peaks of the Alps, and its gentler slopes are ideal therefore for families and less-experienced skiers. Andorra has two ski areas. Vallnord covers Arcalis and Arinsal-Pal and Grandvalira covers Soldeu and Pas de la Casa.
Away from the slopes, Andorra has several other tourist attractions. Caldea, for example, is one of the largest health spas in Europe. It is fed by thermal springs with more than 6,000sq metres of lagoons, saunas, pools, baths and bubble beds.
There are no direct Andorra flights as there is no airport, but there are daily coach services from Barcelona and Toulouse airports to the principality.
