Photo: Border Town Andorra

Border town of the Principality of Andorra Pas de la Casa in Europe welcomes shoppers at the duty free stores.

The Principality of Andorra is a little country (about half the size of New York City - 180 square miles) between France and Spain in Europe. Before 1999 when the 'euro' became the European currency, Andorra did not have its own monetary system, and would use the peseta of Spain or the French franc.Andorra is technically not a full member of the European Union so many things are duty free. As Pas de la Casa is a border town to France the duty free stores are always busy. Cigarettes, alcohol and perfume are the most popular purchases as they are much cheaper in Andorra than the other European countries.As well as being a duty free border town, Pas de la Casa in Andorra is a popular ski area so there is a year-round flow of visitors to this once isolated little country.It is hard to find a parking place outside the complex as everybody likes to shop at the duty free as they come into town or pass by it. ... continue below the picture...
