SITUATION

Andorra is located in south-west Europe, in the heart of the eastern Pyrenees. The country lies between Spain, along the autonomous community of Catalonia, and France, where it borders the Ariège region.

APPEARANCE

    Andorra spans some 468 km2, just 8% is built on, and 92% is forest. This means the country is heaven on Earth for nature lovers.

DIVISION OF THE LAND

    Andorra is organised into seven administrative and territorial divisions called "parishes": Canillo, Encamp, Ordino, La Massana, Andorra la Vella, Sant Julià de Lòria and Escaldes-Engordany.
     
    The capital of the Principality is Andorra La Vella.

CLIMATE

    We enjoy a high-mountain climate, with influences from the Mediterranean, with a hot summer and cold winter with plentiful snow. The average minimum temperature is -2ºC, and the maximum is 24ºC. Precipitation in the form of snow is frequent, and rainfall is mainly concentrated between the months of May and October.

TONGUE

Catalan is our official language, although the rich diversity of nationalities resident here means other languages such as Spanish, French and Portuguese are also widely spoken.

RELIGION

    Catholicism is the main religion practised, though the Constitution of Andorra passed in 1993 guarantees religious freedom.

RESIDENTS

    The country has a population of 78,264 inhabitants (2016 census).

TIMEZONE

    Just like Spain and France, we use GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) +1.

CURRENCY

    The Euro has replaced the Spanish Peseta and the French Franc, which were both used in the country until the European currency was introduced in 2001.
