Information About Andorra

Map of Andorra

Located on the border between France and Spain, Andorrs is a small country with a population of around 75,000 (UN Estimate 2007). Its official name is the Principality of Andorra, or in Catalan, Principat d'Andorra. Andorra is divided into seven parishes which are Andorra la Vella, Canillo, Encamp, Escaldes-Engordany, La Massana, Ordino and Sant Julià de Lòria. Soldeu is in the parish of Canillo.

There are three main resorts which attract tourists for mountain holidays in Andorra. These are Soldeu, Arinsal, and Pas de la Casa. Soldeu and Pas de la Casa are part of the large Grandvalira ski area and Arinsal is part of the Vallnord ski area.

Andorra has one of the highest life expectancies in the world at 83 years. The fresh mountain air and excellent healthcare system will no doubt be key contributors to this statistic.

Language

The official language of Andorra is Catalan, however Spanish and French are widely spoken and English is usually understood by the locals. Andorra is the only country in the world where the only official language is Catalan and they are very proud of the heritage and traditions.

Currency

Euro is the currency used in Andorra. It has always accepted both the French Franc and Spanish Peseta until the Euro was introduced. Until quite recently Andorra wasn't actually in the Eurozone, but the Euro was still used as the currency, however after long negotiations, in 2014 Andorra officially joined the monetary union and started to issue Andorran Euro coins.
