Lifestyle

Shopping

Andorra is a duty-free shopper's dream. With no VAT pushing up prices and streets filled with boutiques and souvenir shops, there's a vast range of bargains to be had from designer wear, jewellery and sunglasses to electronic goods, spirits and luxury perfumes and watches. Most of you shopping can be done minutes after you cross the border into Andorra at Pas de la Casa, there you can roam the streets which overflow with classy gift shops selling must-have local souvenirs glass, copper pots, leather goods, electrical goods and chocolates. For designer clothing, the capital Andorra la Vella's streets are full of intriguing shops and fashion stores.

Cuisine

Mouthwatering pasta, fish, vegetables and delicious desserts - Andorra's cuisine is tantalizing combination of cuisines. Due to the fact that Andorra is sandwiched between France and Spain, the cuisine is distinctly Catalan in style, so expect paellas, meats and fish cooked slowly in the oven. In the Northern region of Andorra, you'll find a dizzying mix of French and Italian cuisine, whilst the Southern region is very much Catalan. Popular dishes include sarsuela, a spicy meat stew or cunillo, rabbit stewed in a rich tomato sauce and appetising recipes such as trinxat, made with bacon, cabbage and potatoes. You'll also find lots of pasta and pa amb tomaquet, toasted bread rubbed with tomato and olive oil served with sausages, ham or cheeses. Don't forget some crèma catalana - the crème brulee with cinnamon or coques, flavoured flat cakes - and tipple-wise, some Catalan wines or sparkling cava.

Nightlife

As night falls over the Andorran ski resorts, après-ski continues well into the evening with a great choice of lively bars, pubs and discos to choose from. Sophisticated or casual, laid-back or lively, Andorra's nightlife offers something for everyone. Whether you fancy relaxing in buzzing bar or pub, sipping cocktails in a colonial-style lounge, enjoying a leisurely meal or hitting the dancefloor, the choice is fantastic. A famed meeting place in Andorra is the Café de la Plaza. Open until late, it's a great venue to party the night away! Away from the chill-out bars and discos, the action of the pistes continues into the evening. Throw in illuminated slopes glistening with snow, enjoy the experience of skiing under the stars on the illuminated ski slopes, or discover the fun snowboarding, snowmobiling or why not go dog sledging? Andorra is chock-o-block full of après-ski activities to try out!

Nightlife

Santiago is awash with tapas bars, wine cellars and music clubs, so if you're a night owl, you'll be spoilt for choice. Whilst many visitors enjoy a leisurely dinner at one of the many good restaurants before heading home, late-nighters can bop till they drop. Around the Rua do Franco area, extrovert bars and tapas haunts light up the night, and elsewhere, you'll find everything from colourful jazz clubs and techno nightclubs to wine bars playing salsa and Galician folk music.
