Catalunya Bus Turistic takes you to one of the jewels of the Pyrenees, the Nuria Valley mountain resort, with its unique landscape and wealth of nature. Discover this unique place, where you can enjoy a wide range of activities that will provide an unforgettable experience surrounded by nature.

  • Discover Santa María de Ripoll monastery
  • Savor local food in Nuria
  • Take the rack railway from Ribes to Nuria and marvel at stunning views of the valley


Meet your guide in downtown Barcelona for a day trip to Ripoll and Nuria.

Once arrived in Ripoll, discover The Monastery of Santa Maria de Ripoll that dates back to the 9th century with a Romanesque style. Its main draw is its portal, which is recognized as one of the most important pieces of European Romanesque sculpture. Here, enjoy a guided visit and a self-guided visit.

Then, take the rack railway from Ribes to Nuria Valley and admire breathtaking views of the landscape to reach Nuria's Valley. Thanks to its geography and climate, it has the characteristic flora and fauna of medium-altitude European and high-Alpine mountains.

Visit the Sanctuary of the Virgin Nuria plays a very important role in religious life and popular traditions. After Montserrat, it is probably Catalonia's most popular and of-ten-visited sanctuary. After that, enjoy wine and food tastings and free time to do all the activities that the place offers, such as:

  • the visit of the Ermita de Sant Gil

  • the visit of the church

  • a picnic in the dedicated zone

  • boat in the lake

  • horse riding in the mountain

  • children's park

  • cable car at Coma de Clot
