barcelona to pyrenees

Will be in Barcelona for two and half days. May 29. We plan to do one day in Barcelona and would really like to get out and see something diffrent from the big city. My friend really wants to see an area of the Pyrenees. I know we can't get too far up, but can anyone suggest a small town where we could take a train or bus to get a taste of this lovely part of Spain?

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for your reply. I read that I can take the train from Barcelona to Ribes de Freser or Ripoll then the rack train to further north. Is that right?

The rack trains begins at Ribes de Freser, so you can go there by the normal train.

Thanks for the info. Do I need to purchase or reserve train tickets in advance for the rack train or on the train from Barcelona to Ribes de Fresser?

it's no necessary. But there is a combinated ticket train BCN-Ribes + "Cremellera", You can buy it on the train station in Barcelona: Arc del Triomf, Sants, Catalunya, etc...
