Barcelona cable car ride

A great way to see her Barcelona from above is to take a ride on the cable car. There are two different types, white and red. The Teleférico de Montjuic and the Teleférico del Puerto.

We start with Teleférico de Montjuic where connects the city with Montjuïc hill. It passes by the sea, over gardens and ends at the highest point of the hill.

Its route is about 750 meters and the height it ascends is 84.5 meters.

The cable car has three stops: Parc de Montjuïc, Miramar and Castell de Montjuïc. You can get it from Paral·lel metro station on lines L2 and L3.

On the hill Monzwick You have a lot to do, such as seeing the Olympic Stadium that hosted the Olympics in 1992, taking photos with the city in the background, seeing from above all the interesting buildings of Barcelona, ​​such as the Sagrada Familia and the Torre Agbar, the castle, etc. See more in our separate post about Monzwick Hill here.

Working hours

The cable car operates daily and has different hours depending on the months.

January and February: 10: 00- 6:00

March – May: 10: 00-7: 00

June – September: 10: 00- 9:00

October: 10:00 – 7:00

November and December: 10: 00- 6:00


Single route: € 7.50 and € 5.80 for children (4-12 years old)

With return: € 10.80 and € 7.80 per child

Get a return ticket because it is cheaper but also to have the opportunity to enjoy the route twice!

The Puerto Cable Car connects the old port with the hillside. It runs 1300 meters over the sea and the Jaime and San Sebastian towers.

To get on the cable car, take the elevator to one of the three stations that look like iron towers. There are no seats, the wagon can accommodate 20 people and there is usually some crowding.

The view is breathtaking, especially crossing the sea. The journey takes 7 minutes. It is open daily from 11 in the morning until 6 in winter and until 8 in summer.

The ticket the one way costs 11.5 € and 16.5 € with return.


* Comparing both we recommend the Teleférico de Montjuic, because it can only accommodate 4 people, it has seats and so the route is more comfortable and enjoyable. Couples even leave them alone in the wagons or you can give it to them

* Look at them hotels of the city, read reviews and ratings from real travelers so you do not have unpleasant surprises by clicking here.
