Andorra is a very small principality on the border between France and Spain at the top of the
Pyrenees mountain range, toward the eastern side of that range. It is famous for its independence, its political freedoms, its skiing, and its low prices.
It is a busy marketplace for Europeans and an occasional American. It can not be reached directly by commercial airlines, but excellent roads make it accessible from France or Spain. The first photo looks back from the border into the Ariege region of France.
To our surprise, near the top of the range there was dense fog, but we drove into sunlight at the top of the divide that leads into Andorra's main valley (photo 2).
One thing that makes this land unusual is the existence of numerous old buildings from the ninth through twelfth centuries, and several Roman building complexes and bridges also survive. This is in large part so because there has never been a modern war, with its large scale destruction, fought on its soil. So the old coexists with the new. The third photo is of a chapel on the main highway that was built in the twelfth century.
The last photo is of a chapel on a hillside just a few miles from Spain that was given its charter by Rome in the year 1060.
The building is sealed, but obviously the graveyard is both used and maintained.
There is much more to Andorra than these few photos would indicate. Of course.
