Cogwheel train

Cogwheel train Review

The train ride from the town of Ribes de Freser up to Núria provides one of Catalonia's most unusual excursions—in few other places in Spain does a train make such a precipitous ascent. Known as the cremallera (zipper), the line was completed in 1931 to connect Ribes with the Santuari de la Mare de Déu de Núria (Mother of God of Núria) and with mountain hiking and skiing. The ride takes 45 minutes and costs €22.30 round-trip.
