Spain Tour; Side Trip to Andorra (La Vella)

8 Days Self-Guided Budget Summer Europe Trip with My Mother
August 18 to 25, 2018


I made this side trip in Barcelona, Spain due to 2 reasons; being just a 3 hours bus travel away from Barcelona and to complete the countries / micro-states of Europe. I only visited the capital, Andorra La Vella's St. Steve Chapel, Casa de la Vall and City Center. There is a crossborder checkpoint during the bus travel, Police Officers just verified our Schengen Visa inside the bus. Andorra is a small mountainous country in the Pyrenees between France and Spain.

timezone - UTC +0200H    capital - Andorra La Vella    language - Catalan    currency - Euro (EUR)
