In the middle of the Pyrenees, the Principality of Andorra is one of the smallest sovereign nations of Europe. Its territory offers features that have attracted the Tour de France since 1964 when Spanish climber Julio Jiménez had triumphed after a solo effort. The Grande Boucle like the Vuelta then discovered the resort of Arcalis visited on several occasions. Brice Feillu was the last man to win there on the first mountain stage of the 2009 edition.
