Vall de Nuria, Queralbs
Categories: Valleys, Nature & Parks
Vall de Nuria, a valley opening south out of the Pyrenees, earns its name from the legend of St. Giles, who lived here around 700 CE. When a Roman persecution against Christians forced him out of his hermitage, he hid a painting of the Virgin Mary in a cave. After being found by a pilgrim in the 11th century, it became a symbol of fertility for the valley's shepherds. You can reach the valley via scenic rail from the south--take the train through a deep gorge up into the mountains, and then catch the gondola if you'd like to go even higher. In summer, hike through the verdant evergreen forests and grassy meadows, past a placid lake. In winter, enjoy skiing on 10 runs of varying levels. The ski area is served by multiple lifts and the gondola that runs year-round. The valley is about two hours outside of Barcelona by train.

Simple and calm hotel. Breakfast are simple and enough to start the day. Less than 10mins away from the train station.
Nice hotel but worst service.
