Pictures Andorra and Pyrenees Mountains

Photo gallery Andorra in summer and winter. Andorra is a small landlocked country entirely situated in the Pyrenees mountains on the border between France and Spain. It is one of Europe's six smallest micro-states and has been a co-principality since 1268 in the thirteenth century. 

You can visit Andorra on a day road trip from Barcelona and experience spectacular mountain views, drive on mountain passes (weather permitting) and cross three country borders in one day if you enter Andorra from the east border at Pas de la Casa.

In the winter Andorra is a winter sports paradise with many excellent ski resorts and areas. Here are some photos of Andorra and the Pyrenees and Pre-Pyrenees mountains.

Andorra's new mountain skywalk opened in 2016 at the Mirador del Roc del Quer near the village of Canillo. The skywalk is 20 metres long and the last 12 metres are in mid-air. 


At the moment the Andorra skywalk is the only skywalk of its kind in the Pyrenees mountains. (There is a smaller 4 metre mountain skywalk at the Porté Puymorens ski resort in France near Andorra but it is only accesible by hikers in the summer or skiers in the winter. )


At the end of the skywalk is a sculpture of man sitting contemplating the stunning views of the Canillo valley on both sides of the Andorra skywalk



Andorra's mountain skywalk is not recommended if you suffer from vertigo - especially not the glass floor panels where visitors can look directly down at the 500 meter free-fall drop to the valley bottom.


On the way to the Roc del Quer skywalk visitors pass one of 8 original sculptures placed around Andorra to mark the 25th anniversary of Andorra's social security service,  CASS (Caixa Andorra de Seguretat Social). This one is  by Mexican artist Jorge Dubon and called 'Self-Generating Structures'.


There are also benches where visitors can enjoy the stunning views.



Andorra is 181 sqm / 468 km² big and entirely in the Pyrenees mountain range dividing France and Spain

Visitors can enjoy a large outdoor 5 metre bronze sculpture by Spanish/Catalan Salvador Dali called 'Nobility of Time' on the Plaça de la Rotonda in Andorra la Vella. It was donated to the Andorra by Enric Sabater, who was both Dali’s agent and friend in his later years. The sculpture is one of the melted watch series inspired by Dalis famous 1931 painting 'The Persistence of Memory' with melted clock to symbolise the passage of time. In the Nobility of time the soft melting watch is draped around a tree trunk and has a crown to symbolise time’s triumph over humanity.
