In 2004, the cultural landscape of the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley was inscribed on the World Heritage List. Its dramatic glacial landscapes of craggy cliffs and steep wooded valleys covers 9% of the total area of Andorra. In June 2005, the permanent delegation of the Principality organized an exhibition about this Pyrenean valley at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
Andorra, a principality nestled in the Pyrenees at the border between France and Spain, joined UNESCO on October 20, 1993.
Two schools in Andorra, one primary and one secondary, participate in the activities of UNESCO. Both are part of the Western Mediterranean Sea Project (PMO), in which teachers and students from Andorra, Algeria, France, Italy, Malta, Morocco, Spain and Tunisia work together to promote cultural diversity and Euro-Arab dialogue.
