Fodor's Expert Review Cogwheel Train (Cremallera)

Ribes de Freser and Vall de Nuria Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train) Fodor's Choice
Cogwheel Railway, Valley of Nuria, Catalan, Spain

The 45-minute 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. The cremallera 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.
