Product Description:
This unique book examines the history, culture, and inner workings of the seven smallest independent countries in Europe. These are among the oldest states on the continent and, despite their diversity, they have much in common. Most have relatively high per capita incomes and life expectancies, and relatively low unemployment. This narrative presents the unique issues that confront small countries, including maintaining their independence, economic viability, preserving their native languages, and sustaining their governments. The second part of the book describes each microstate in turn, showing how each one has met these challenges and adapted over time. These concise and engaging chapters contain cultural information on subjects including the arts, gastronomy, and popular tourist sites.

• Waterproof • Tear-Resistant • Travel Map

National Geographic's Pyrenees and Andorra Adventure Map provides global travelers with the perfect combination of detail and perspective in a highly functional travel tool. This map includes the locations of cities and towns with a user-friendly index, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for roads and highways. Beaches and yachting harbors dot Spain and France's Mediterranean coastlines while the location of golf courses, camping sites, waterfalls, caves, and ski areas make it easy to enjoy the region's abundant outdoor activities. National parks, World Heritage sites, scenic viewpoints, antiquity sites, museums, and more are included, making it invaluable to travelers hoping to experience all the history, art, and culture the region has to offer.

The front side of the print map shows the country of Andorra and the eastern half of the Pyrenees including the cities of Narbonne, Carcassone, Pamiers, St-Gaudens, St-Girons, Perpignan in France, and Balaguer, Manresa, and Figueres in Spain. The reverse side of the map stretches from the city of Biarritz on the Bay of Biscay eastward to include Pamplona and Huesca, Spain, and Pau, Tarbes, and the famed pilgrimage site of Lourdes, France.

Popular for alpine skiing and mountaineering, the Pyrenees are a scenic mountain range which form a natural boundary between Spain and France. Stages of two of cycling's epic grand tours ? the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España ? traverse the Pyrenees and three long-distance footpaths run the length of the mountain range. Nestled in the center of the Pyrenees is the ruggedly beautiful Andorra, the sixth smallest country in Europe which is roughly two and a half times the size of Washington, D.C. Its picturesque mountain vistas and easy charm have made Andorra a favorite destination for savvy travelers.
