Vall de Nuria is a high mountain valley. Very popular with skiers in winter.
If you go hiking outside the ski slopes you can admire a wonderful landscape with many watercourses, waterfalls and a lot of nature.
Vall de Núria near the border to France in the Comarca Ripollès in the north of Catalonia, is an important religious place.
Since the mountain valley is car-free, a cogwheel railway (the Cremallera de Núria) runs from the valley town of Ribes de Freser via Queralbs into the valley; at the top station there are 1.967 meters the Santuari de la Mare de Déu de Núria, the sanctuary of Our Lady of Núria, the hermit's chapel of Sant Gil, a hotel, a small hydroelectric power station and some lifts.
The Vall de Lord is located in the north of the Solsonès region and includes the towns of Sant Llorenç de Morunys, la Coma and la Pedra i Guixers.
Pedraforca is one of the most striking mountains of Catalonia (Spain). The two peaks Pollegó Superior (2497m) and El Calderer (2491m) overtop all other peaks in the neighborhood.
The Name Pedraforca is from the two catalan words Pedra (Stone) and Forca (Fork). In english: Stonefork.
