Vall de Nuria is a high mountain valley. Very popular with skiers in winter.
If you go hiking outside the ski slopes you can admire a wonderful landscape with many watercourses, waterfalls and a lot of nature.
Vall de Núria near the border to France in the Comarca Ripollès in the north of Catalonia, is an important religious place.
Since the mountain valley is car-free, a cogwheel railway (the Cremallera de Núria) runs from the valley town of Ribes de Freser via Queralbs into the valley; at the top station there are 1.967 meters the Santuari de la Mare de Déu de Núria, the sanctuary of Our Lady of Núria, the hermit's chapel of Sant Gil, a hotel, a small hydroelectric power station and some lifts.
