balade @ Andorre-la-Vieille et la moderne…:-)

Andorra la Vella(en catalan) est la capitale de la Principauté d’Andorre et une station de ski populaire qui compte environ 20 000 habitants. Elle se trouve sur la rivière Gran Valira, à 1 410m d’altitude, ce qui en fait la plus haute capitale d’Europe, regroupant la majorité des institutions nationales et des services, dont le Gouvernement d’Andorre. En bon et fier Catalan, Salvador Dali a offert à la ville une “montre noble”! 🙂
