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.
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
