Getting to Andorra
Andorra is easily accessible to reach through 3 cities: Toulouse (France), Barcelona, and Lleida (Spain). There are multiple options to fit in with lots of different itineraries. We chose Zaragoza since it's only a 1-hour train ride away from Lleida and we were coming from Bilbao. I think it was the least common route into Andorra so the last leg of the bus was empty. Barcelona is the most common route and offers the most options in bus times. Visiting here can be done in a day trip but we recommend 2 nights you will not be disappointed.
I've included 2 links below for bus routes:
We chose to stay in the heart of Andorra la Vella since we were walking around downtown and weren't staying long. What our hotel lacked in amenities it made up for in the views. Opening the windows and seeing the stunning landscape I felt like Belle from Beauty and the beast singing Bonjour. The town is accessible by foot just a bit steep and hilly look for the elevator symbol for some relief.
We explored the city, beautiful figurative sculptures, Kilometer zero, and a Salvador Dali sculpture (The Nobility of Time). We had some fun mailing postcards, seeing a Great Pyrenees dog, and interesting window displays.
There were interesting and beautiful things to see in this small town. We only scratched the surface but we loved the Rec del Sola Trail for its wonderful views of the city and lots of cats as pictured in our cat blog.
Thermal spa Eric and I mentioned Caldea.
