Vall de Nuria, Queralbs

(4.2/5 based on 460 reviews on the web)
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.

  • To upload an Odyssey. We travel with LetsBonus entries, I did queue for 2 hours to get ticket and 30 minutes more to go up to the zipper. The slope we were more lucky and caught the zipper fast enough, at 17:30, if it's any help. The attention very good, we put ramp of handicapped, very friendly the proofreaders.

  • I don't give 5 stars only because of the poor WiFi and the rooms a little noisy. But for an hotel at 2000meters unreachable by car these are details. The place is amazing. One of the hearts of catalana culture, surrounded by mountains, hiking paths, ski attractions, horses lakes boats.... All in a very relaxed and totally CAR FREE environment. Food is good and abundant, especially if you book half pension. It's a natural paradise. And a must. 😀
  • The hotel landscape is brilliant, It can't have better sights. It's also really clean. The service of the restaurant is acceptable, but the food it's delicious. A little bit expensive. I recommend It for climbing the nearby mountains!
  • Habia mucha gente y poco personal para atenderles.
  • Nice place, wonderful venue
  • Simple and calm hotel. Breakfast are simple and enough to start the day. Less than 10mins away from the train station.
