Ribes de Freser is about 20 minutes north of Ripoll by train. It is the closest town to the end station of la Cremellera. Ribes de Freser, however, offers more than just train stations. I was there in February and it was quite cold - I could see my own breath. The town is cute and quaint and has four or five places to stay because of the presence of la Cremellera. You can visit the church or, as I did, set out in the morning to hike up in the mountains around the town. There are some spectacular views and a few ruins north of the town.
