I have arrived in Andorra, one of the smallest states in Europe. Hidden away high in the Pyrenees mountains, the country is secluded and seldom visited. The capital, Andorra la Vella, is one of the world’s highest capital cities at an altitude of 1029 meters.
"The area contains 54 excavated bunkers along with gun emplacements, scattered around the town’s most visible landmark."
