ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
There are a few villages, but the one and only city in the country, Andorra la Vella, has over 2,000 shops.
Andorra offers some of the most spectacular scenery in all of the Pyrenees. In the winter, this tiny country is well known for the best skiing in the Pyrenees while in the summer, walking or hiking is a favorite activity.
The top historical attraction is the Church of St. Stephen.
Over nine million tourists visit each year, so obviously, Andorra is a favored destination and visitors are well taken care of by the many hotels and other attractions.
It's pretty hard to get lost, as there are only two roads leading to Andorra - one from France and the other from Spain.
