Andorra, one of the world’s smallest nations, is nestled in the border between Spain and France. It is a unique place that delights shoppers, nature lovers and those who enjoy winter sports, as more than 90% of its surface is covered by forests.
Andorra is nestled between Spain and France at the top of the Pyrenees.
The Principality of Andorra, as it is officially known, was founded by Emperor Charlemagne in 805, in gratitude to the people in this area after their heroic struggle against the Saracens. But it wasn’t until 1288 that this territory officially became a country. At present, its form of government is a parliamentary co-principality, and the heads of state are the bishop of the nearby Catalan city of La Seu d'Urgell and the President of France.
