Very nice pics, I think I had already seen some of those. The scenery is astonishing and the city looks so modern! I like Andorra la Vella a lot, looks like a very nice city. I even thought of going there while in Barcelona, but since it was raining all the time I just didn't bother.

Anyway, which is the most widely spoken language in Andorra? Catalan? Or Spanish or French prevail over Catalan?

The official and historic language is Catalan. Because of immigration, historical links, and close geographic proximity, other languages such as Spanish and French are also commonly spoken.

The scenery of Andorra is amazing. The city itself is a bore. There are more fun places to go to just across the border.

you can say that is almost 50-50 between spanish and catalan, but the second one is a little bit more spoken.

Something strange is that almost 70% of the population thinks spanish is the most spoken language while in fact it's catalan

Nice, but it looks more "normal" than I expected. Except for the glass tower and the stunning mountains of course!

I mean it is beautiful but it reminds more of average cities in Europe than of Monaco or Barcelona than for example.
Still amazing nature and very nice, good pictures!

I was there a few years ago. Loved the place. Was a little slow off-season.

My only beef is many of the roads between the little towns outside of Andorra la Vella have no sidewalks or bike paths.
