Andorra la Vella is the capital of Andorra, a tiny country located between France and Spain. It is a charming town with narrow cobblestoned alleys and striking stone houses. The principal industry of Andorra la Vella is tourism. It offers exciting skiing opportunities throughout the winter and mountain getaways in the summer. The country also earns income as a tax-haven.
Andorra La Vella is not a big place, so most attractions are within easy walking distance. The city is divided into two parts - the old quarter and a newer section with a lot of shops and boutiques.
The main attractions include the Chapel of St. Andreu, the church of Sant Esteve and the church of Santa Coloma, one of the oldest buildings in the country. It was built between the 9th and 10th centuries. Another attraction is the Casa de la Vall (House of the Valley), seat of the Andorran Parliament since 1702.
