La Vall de Núria (2)

One of the reasons why the Vall de Núria has remained so lovely and unspoilt (give or take a few ski-lifts) is that it's inaccessible by car.

To get there, take the train from Plaza Catalunya to Ribes de Freser (about 115km, around two hours by train), and from there take the Cremallera (pictured, above) up to the top (about another 40 minutes).

If you go at this time of the year, be prepared for it to be cold — the train takes you up to around 2.000m!
