To think about
Andorra la Vella is the capital city, which is why it is home to all of the national institutions.
Don't critique Catalan; it was chosen as the official language of the principality of Andorra in 1996 and the residents are proud to live in the first UN-recognised country to have Catalan as an official language.
The local cuisine is a subtle blend of French, Spanish, and Catalan influences. The Catalan specialities will introduce you to new flavours. Try the 'boles de picolat' (Catalan meatballs) or the 'rosta'; you won't be disappointed! Most Andorran dishes are simple and prepared with local meat and vegetables.
To bring back
Tobacco, alcohol, perfumes, luxury and mass-market consumer goods are all sold at very attractive prices.
