Introduction

L'Andorre n'a jamais connu de structures militaires sur son territoire. La signature des Paréages en 1278 et 1288 par le Comte de Foix et l'Evêque de la Seu d'Urgell interdisait la construction de toute infrastructure militaire ainsi que le recrutement de jeunes andorrans par une armée. Les Coprinces étaient les garants de la sécurité de la Principauté. L'Andorre n'a jamais eu à se doter d'une armée.

Introduction

There have never been military installations on Andorran territory. The paréages (feudal treaties) signed in 1278 and 1288 by the Count of Foix and the Bishop of Urgell forbade the construction of military infrastructures and the recruitment of young Andorrans by any army. Since the co-princes were responsible for the security of the Principality, Andorra has never needed to develop an army.
