Good to know:
Official language is Catalan and Euro is the currency. Andorra is located in a high valley of the Pyrenees. More than a third of Andorra lies above the tree line.
Andorra was founded on September 8, 1278 and today it is the largest of the six European dwarf states in terms of area. It is the only country in the world where two foreign officials perform the function of head of state (the Bishop of Urgell and the President of France). Thus, it is a dual rule or Dyarchy. Andorra is considered a winter sports and tax haven.
