SHORT INFORMATION

Major Natural Resources

Andorra is a very small country situated in the Pyrenees Mountains, so the country's natural resources are limited to what can be gathered from that terrain. They have hydropower and mineral water from the mountain streams and rivers. They have timber from the forest-covered mountains. They can also gather iron ore and lead from the rocky mountain terrain.
