Andorra is a land-locked sovereign state in Southwestern Europe situated in the Pyrenees Mountains between France and Spain. It is a Catalan-speaking region and has a population of approximately 85,000 people. The capital city, Andorra la Vella, is one of Europe’s highest cities, resting at an elevation of 3356 feet (1023 m). Andorra’s economy is heavily reliant on tourism, with many visitors flocking to the urban center. The city’s streets are lined not only with cafes and shops but with a variety of contemporary sculptures as well. The artworks are made from a diverse range of materials: rock, stone and welded metals, in addition to more natural pieces carved from trees and paired with existing plant life. One piece, entitled “La Noblesse du temps,” is from a series of works by Salvador Dali and sits in the heart of the capital city. The piece, a dripping clock hanging from a sculpted tree branch, is intended to signify the passage of time.
