Picturesque small country situated high in the mountains between France and Spain. The capital - Andorra la Vella is located on the picturesque plains that surrounded by the chain of high mountains!

The exterior resembles a fortress, and it's completely absent of any decoration. Nearby stands the Watch Tower and the dovecote.

The houses located around the valley "Sala de la Justicia" or Hall of Justice - the only judicial institution of Andorra, as well as the Houses of Parliament - "Sala del Konsell" on the upper floors which are magnificent Philatelic Museum.
