There are only two ways to get to the heart of the Nuria Valley, high in the Spanish Pyrenees and isolated from much of the region. The first is to walk. The second is on an antiquated train, along the ridges above valleys and through mountain tunnels. Coming out of the last tunnel, the light shines in through the window and, across a lake at eye level, the destination is revealed. It is an enchanting way to arrive.

Catalan Tourist Board is the official body that works closely with the Catalan public and private sector to promote and consolidate the “Catalunya” brand around the world.
Catalonia is the number one tourist destination in Spain and one of the leading destinations in Europe, with more than 24 million tourists visiting per year, of which more than 14 million are from abroad.
As well as the traditional visit to the capital, Barcelona, Catalonia has a great deal more to offer: from the impressive peaks of the Pyrenees, to the 580 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline, and symbolic cities such as Girona, Tarragona and Lleida. To enhance the attractiveness of Catalonia’s offering, Catalan Tourist Board breaks down the tourism product into different areas, such as family, sporting, active, cultural, rural, nautical, gastronomic, accessible, snow, business, golf and health and wellbeing.
