La Vuelta would not be what it is without Andorra and its importance becomes increasingly pronounced in the itineraries of the grand tours. It is a territory that is committed to sports, skiing, nature and shopping tourism, where some of the greatest moments in cycling's recent history have taken place. The thermal city of Escaldes-Engordany will host a La Vuelta departure for the fifth time in its history.
More than 7 kilometres, with an average incline of 8% and slopes of up to 15%. This is how three demanding weeks of competition will come to an end for the peloton. The Coll de la Gallina, an Andorran mountain pass that has been climbed three times before in the history of the Spanish tour, will be the deciding stage that will determine who will win the right to wear La Roja in the final celebration in Madrid.
