Andorra: Country and Foreign Investment
The Principality of Andorra is located at high altitude in the Eastern Pyrenees, landlocked between France and Spain. Its total area is 467 sq km. The landscape is mountainous with narrow valleys in between. Riu Valira at 849m is the lowest point and the highest point is Coma Pedrosa at 2,946 m. Summers are cool and dry in the uplands, although warm in the valleys; winters are cold and snowy, but it is often sunny. The terrain and the climate together make for excellent skiing. The capital is Andorra La Vella, and the country is divided administratively into seven parishes. The country's natural resources are hydropower, mineral water, timber and iron ore. There is no international airport: Barcelona is about 3 hours away; road connections to both France and Spain are good.
