Advantages Good route to The Jardins Artigus
|Is it worth visiting?|
When we were on holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees somewhere I wanted to visit was the Jardins Artigus near la Pobla de Lillet and Castellar de n'hug
We decided to catch the tourist train Ferrocarril Turístic de l'Alt Llobregat
This train once was the train that used to run cement from the cement factory at Casteller de n'Hug. This train is really a tourist train now it runs from the train museum at Pobla to the cement factory museum nr Casteller de n'hug where there are guided tours.
We got to the end of the line at the museum but discovered we had got there at the beginning of the 2 hour lunch break ……………………….. We should have checked before we began our journey. The train turns round here and returns back to Pobla ten minutes later. We had got off the train and walked away so had to catch the next train back an hour later. There is a café at the station here so we had a drink and we could have had something to eat but I had a picnic with us so we walked of and found somewhere to eat. Returning to Pobla de lillet we looked around the small railway museum by the side of the stationThe timetable is quite good trains run hourly check the timetable at http://www.fgc.net/accesible/eng/ociturisme/tren_turistic.htm as they differ depending on the season. The hour between trains was ideal for us to walk around the jardins Artigus, and I think would have been ok at the ciment museum. However we did not go into the museum, something to do another year.
This train journey its self is good, goes on a scenic route and is a pleasant journey a good way of getting to both the gardens and the museum adding a little extra to the day out. The train goes through some fantastic mountain views round corners over a bridge
