The Montjuic cable care might be the funniest means of transport in Barcelona along with the Tramvia Blau, is a gondola lift that connects Montjuic Hill from bottom to top.

There are magnificent views from the Telefèric as we call it, take your camera with you or simply enjoy the views will you get up to the top of the hill. The cable car was put into service in 1970 but on 2004 it closed to go under renovation and increase capacity and in 2007 it opened up again.

The cable car line is 752m in length, the car slows down when it gets to the station so the passengers can get in and get out safely. The Montjuïc cable car is administered by TMB but it is not integrated on the fare network so you will have to buy separate tickets for the Telefèric that need to be purcharsed before boarding.

The Montjuïc Cable Car should not be confused with the Port Vell Aerial Tramway, which crosses Port Vell, Barcelona's old harbour, and connects the Montjuïc hill with the seaside suburb of Barceloneta.

The Montjuïc cable car takes passengers from the Estaciò Funicular on Avenida Miramar, half way up Montjuïc and dropping them at Montjuïc Castle. The cable car has three stations: Parc de Montjuïc, Miramar and Castell de Montjuïc, and is fully accessible.

The entire journey lasts approximately seven minutes, note that there are no seats inside the car and people move around the space, so you can enjoy different views in the sam space.

The prices of the tickets for 2016 are: Adult return ticket: €12.00 Adult single ticket: €8.00

Child return ticket (from 4 to 12 years old): €8.80 Child single ticket: €6.20
