Mountenesque pictures winning in Andorra

Andorra was the smallest country participating in the 2012 Wiki Loves Monuments competition, but that doesn’t mean that there are no beautiful places to photograph! Being located in the Pyrenees mountain chain between Spain and France, photos of Andorran heritage are almost guaranteed to offer a stunning view in the background. In the 2011 competition it was already accomplished that every monumental building in the country had a photo on Wikipedia, this year the goal was to provide different, more and better pictures to document them as well as possible.

Because of the smaller size of the country, it may be not so surprising that several people won multiple prizes in the top-10 of Andorra. Congratulations!
