The capital of Andorra—Andorra la Vella, that is located in a cozy chine of the Pyrenees, from recent time can offer maximum opportunities from the point of view of European shopping.
First of all, it concerns prices for all the goods in Andorra. Due to the fact that the VAT rate in Andorra is one of the lowest (IGI) 4.5%, shopping in Andorra is one of the most advantageous within the bounds of EU. The prices for clothes, electronics, alcohol and some foodstuff are 15-20% lower than in neighbor Spain or France. In different stores of Andorra la Vella the price difference can be even more tangible in the period of seasonal discounts.
Secondly, shopping in Andorra la Vella presupposes maximum concentration of boutiques, stores and shopping centers per square meters. There are more than 2000 stores in Andorra, i.e. more than 40 per one citizen. For instance, being in Avenue Carlemany you are within walking distance from monobrand boutiques with clothes or jewelries, sporting malls and supermarkets that sell alimentary products and alcohol.
Thirdly, a top-notch shopping is combined with inseparable landscapes, skiing, thermal springs and developed touristic infrastructure. Shopping in Andorra is one of the major reasons of the fact that the Principality with 70 000 of citizens is annually visited by 8 mln of tourists.
