The Ribes Valley is located at the Nortwest of the Ripollès region and comprises the villages of Campelles, Planoles, Pardines, Queralbs, Toses and Ribes de Freser, the economic capital of the valley. The ecological richness of the area is its main attraction, with water being present in every corner, in the shape of a fountain, a spring or a stream.
The typical vegetation of the high mountains borders the paths and small tracks used for trecking. The endemic fauna and farm animals own the woods, the pastures and the meadows. You can discover unexpected views from any place, such as rural architecture blending into the landscape, and the witnesses of the peasants’ presence: from barnyards and salting stones to shepherds’ huts. However, the Romanesque is the most important vestige in the Valley. You can find from important monumental ensembles to small churches which mix with medieval castles and modernist buildings, thus consolidating a heritage asset in the area. Gastronomy is rich in artisan products such as honey, mets (sweet desserts), dairy products, danies (cookies), mató (cottage cheese), locally-produced sausages and meat. The valley idiosyncrasy has maintained a culture full of mountain customs and traditions.
In the Ribes Valley you can enjoy a fantastic weekend getaway with family and children. An unrivalled place to practice gastronomic tourism, with privileged routes and a proposal of food and wine that will make you want to come back once again. And of course, both during winter and summer, you will find that the Ribes Valley is an excellent place to practice mountain and adventure sports.
