Geography and landscapes
It was a valley with a history without relief.
Mountainous, the principality is undeniably so: its average altitude is 1 m and its highest perched city, Pas de la Casa, is established at 996 m! However, no summit reaches 2 m: the highest point in the country, the Comapedrosa, displays “just” 050 3 m. Glacial erosion is obvious here with, at altitude, a succession of lakes fed by meltwater. Descending from the heights, the torrents, led by Riu Valira, have patiently carved out 000 main valleys, where towns, roads and cultures are concentrated. Open on the southern flank of the Pyrenees, Andorra has always, logically, turned more towards Spain.
The layering of vegetation is obvious from the many points of view offered by the ledge roads.
