Andorra travel guide

4.1
Thermal Spas · Ski Areas · Theme Parks
Andorra's wild popularity among tourists can be attributed to its gently sloped ski resorts, extensive hiking trails, and duty-free shopping. The skyline features the ubiquitous outline of the rugged Pyrenees mountain range, with average elevations of 1,996 m (6,549 ft). Tranquillity and relaxation ensue at altitudes of 1,000 m (3,281 ft) at the well-known Caldea Spa Complex, distinguished by its elegant glass spires. If you prefer a little retail therapy, try the duty-free shopping in the capital city Andorra la Vella's bustling avenues. Sightseeing includes Romaneque churches, shrines, and historic houses, including a replica of the famous statue of Our Lady of Meritxell, which was destroyed in a 1972 fire. Andorra's Catalan culture, including folk dances and music, is very much alive today in the town of Sant Julià de Lòria.
