Subject: RE: Andorra, Navarre etc. .....
Last week we stayed at Ducs de Cardona, a parador in Cardona. It is about an hour and a half south of Andorra. It is a converted castle and monastery. It was a treat.

Avoiding Andorra on a weekend is good advice. The main street in Andorra La Vella is clogged with shoppers on weekends and the roads are often clogged with skiers from primarily Barcelona. However, I heard yesterday that the snow conditions have deteriorated because of even warmer weather than last week and some shops are refusing to rent skis to beginners. That may dampen the ski crowd.
