Postmarked July 1999

Bonjour (or should I say Hola!) This week’s carte postale features the cities of Andorra.

The Principality of Andorra is a small, landlocked sovereign state (468 sq km/ 181 sq miles) located on the border between Spain and France.

Since 1993, the honorary heads of state are co-princes: the President of France and the Bishop of Seu d’Urgell of Spain.

Catalan is the official language, but Castilian, French, and Portuguese are also spoken in Andorra.

Although Andorra is not a member of the European Union, they use the euro as their national currency (as evidenced by the stamp on the postcard above).
