A sustainable trip to escape the rush

FGC Turisme tourist transports will also be in circulation during the summer season: three tourist trains, three funiculars and two rack trains. Under the umbrella of the Turistren brand, FGC invites citizens to rediscover the territory of inland Catalonia to transport them to destinations full of nature, culture and history. A proposal in which the trip becomes an experience in itself.


The Montserrat Rack Railway and the Montserrat Funiculars, located in the Bages region, allow sustainable access to one of the most emblematic and characteristic places in Catalonia: the Montserrat Mountain Natural Park, an incomparable tourist reference that receives visitors from all over the world. parts of the world. Apart from the numerous hiking routes that can be followed, you can also enjoy museum spaces such as the Geopark Interpretation Center or the Montserrat Museum, without forgetting the obligatory visit to the Basilica of Montserrat.


The Núria Rack Railway, in the Ripollès region, brings the population from the towns of Ribes and Queralbs to Vall de Núria, a unique natural enclave in the Catalan Pyrenees. This is the only transportation to access the FGC mountain station. Along the 12.5 kilometers of route and 1,000 meters of elevation gain, this tourist transport with more than 90 years of history offers spectacular views of the landscape. The journey is made without crowds since users are recommended to book their ticket in advance and, in this way, availability and seats are guaranteed. In this way, it is also possible to respect and protect the environment with a sustainable influx of visitors and without overcrowding, both for the valley and its surroundings.


This summer, your ticket includes the ride with the Coma del Clot Cable Car to the Mirador del Pic de l'Àliga and the visit to all the museum spaces and interpretation center that the visitor will find in Vall de Núria and at the rack railway station in Ribes Vila. In addition, on weekends you can enjoy a special circulation with vintage trains and an interpretive guide that includes an exceptional stop at the Fontalba viewpoint on the route.


As for the Tren del Ciment, in Alt Berguedà, it maintains its tourist route that runs along the route that in the past linked the Asland cement factory, in Castellar de n'Hug (today converted into the Cement Museum), with Guardiola from Berguedà, currently stopping at the Artigas Gardens designed by Antoni Gaudí and the Pobla de Lillet.


The Tren dels Llacs runs through one of the most spectacular and unique places in the territory, entering from La Plana to the Pre-Pyrenees of Lleida. Travelers can choose between two forms of travel: either with the Historical Train or with the Panoramic Train, which stands out for its large windows. Be that as it may, visitors will be able to enjoy landscapes that will not leave them indifferent, between mountains, bridges, tunnels and gorges. This season, the Tren dels Llacs will be in operation until October 26. In total, there will be 24 circulations of the Historical Train and four circulations of the Panoramic Train.


As a novelty this year, the Department of Territory has completed the Llacs cycle tourism route, 107 kilometers long. It runs through the regions of Segrià, La Noguera and Pallars Jussà, parallel and complementary to the FGC Lleida - La Pobla de Segur line, in an environment of high landscape value. Its objective is to promote the safe use of bicycles as a tourist, sports and leisure element. In this sense, FGC's commitment to the territory is shown. In this area, therefore, there are already two Railway actions: the tourist service of the Tren dels Llacs and this route.


Finally, the Tren Granota, which circulates between Les Planes and the Sabadell and Terrassa stations, will be in circulation until December and will offer service on the next four Sundays: September 22, October 6, November 3 and December 1. On each trip, the train, declared a Cultural Asset of General Interest in 2023 by the Department of Culture of the Generalitat of Catalonia, stops at all intermediate stations, where travelers can get on and off the vehicle.


One of the best skies in Europe for astronomical observation

The Parc Astronòmic del Montsec is located in the Noguera region, in an extraordinary location considered the best place for sky observation in Catalonia. The low cloud cover in the area, the little light pollution and the altitude make the Sierra del Montsec the ideal place for the installation of a world reference center in astronomy.


The Park brings science to citizens to make known the greatness of a night sky with extraordinary characteristics that allows us to discover the secrets of the universe. For this reason, it is considered the most important astronomy equipment in Catalonia and also becomes a reference in the teaching and dissemination of space and universe sciences. It also offers the unique opportunity to observe the sun as a daytime activity, showing itself as a space rich in diverse experiences both day and night.


Among the wide range of events, this summer highlights the screening of Pink Floyd's iconic album 'The Dark Side of the Moon', in commemoration of its 50th anniversary. The Parc Astronòmic commemorates the legacy of the British rock band with an immersive experience with immersive music and images. The screenings that began last December will continue until November 16 of this year. Another proposal worth highlighting is the 14th edition of the "Music under the Stars" cycle, which takes place from July to December and includes a visit to the Park and a musical show.
