Robert Moore LIKE A TINY LIGHTHOUSE ALMOST ENGULFED BY HUGE GREEN BILLOWS, A CHURCH TOWER MARKS THE VILLAGE OFTAURINYA Farming has its ups and downs on the steep slopes of the valley that leads toward Mont Canigou (Plate IV). The Pyrenees rise like acolossal Chinese Wall, separating France and Spain. Highest mountain is the Pic d'Aneto (11,168 feet). Theisolated little Republic ofAndorra straddles a section of the frontier. Another geographic oddity is a piece of Spanish territory entirely surrounded by French soil (Plate XII). This enclave offour square miles is connected with its mother country by a neutral road running from Llivia, its only town, tothe Spanish border.
