Andorra: Country and Foreign Investment
This page was last updated on 30 Jan 2019.
The Principality of Andorra is a landlocked, high altitude territory in the eastern Pyrenees lying between France and Spain. Its total area is 467 sq. km. The landscape is mountainous with narrow valleys in between. The valley of the Gran Valira is the lowest point at 849m, and the highest point is Coma Pedrosa at 2946 m.
Summers are cool and dry in the uplands and warmer 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 administratively divided into seven parishes. Andorra’s natural resources are hydroelectric power, mineral water, timber and iron ore. There is no international airport; the nearest are at Barcelona and Toulouse, both about 3 hours away. Road connections to these cities and other parts of France and Spain are good.
