Queralbs

Local nameQueralbs
LocationCatalonia, Spain

Queralbs is a municipality in the comarca of the Ripollès in Girona, Catalonia, Spain. It is situated in the Pyrenees to the north of Ribes de Freser, near the peaks of Puigmal, Infern and Noufonts. Tourism and hydroelectricity are the bases of the local economy. The Virgin of Nuria shrine is situated in the municipality, to the north of the village in Vall de Núria: it houses a romanesque mural image of la Mare de Déu de Núria. The shrine is reached by Vall de Núria Rack Railway from Ribes de Freser, which also serves the village. There is also a local road to Ribes de Freser, which serves the ski resort.

The first historical mention of Queralbs is in the consecration act of the church of the Urgell Diocese in 836—thus the town's motto, poble mil·lenari—and its Romanesque church, dedicated to Saint James, dates to the late tenth century.
