Discover the city with Barcelona Port Cable Car

Barcelona’s cable car crosses 1,300 meters (4,265 feet) in ten minutes to reach Montjuïc Hill. It was finished in 1931, even though it was originally designed for the 1929 Universal Exhibition, and has kept its original appearance throughout the years, taking its passengers on a journey through time with a wonderful landscape to admire.

Why should you use the cable car?

This attraction is a great family plan in the city, as well as a romantic plan for couples or a fun activity for trips with friends. When using the cable car, you go up to 101 meters (331 feet) above sea level, which allows you to have a unique view of the city and see Barcelona as you have never seen it before. And as the facility hasn’t changed in its appearance, you can experience an almost authentic journey through time.

In addition to the stunning view and the authentic means of transport, the cable car enables you to reach the Montjuïc Castle either by walking from the arrival point or by taking another cable car. The castle, currently a municipal facility, was built in 1640 as a military fortress and is very interesting to visit. Moreover, the views from there are gorgeous, you can see all the city from the port to the big Ferris wheel of the Tibidabo amusement park. For more information about the Montjuïc Castle, you can visit its official website.

The route

The cable car connects the San Sebastián tower in Barceloneta, which is 70 meters (230 feet) high and part of Barcelona Historic and Artistic Heritage, with the Miramar station, located on the Montjuïc mountain. The route can be done in both directions, going up in Barceloneta and getting off at Monjuïc or vice versa, as well as make the round trip. The Tower of Jaume I, which is halfway, is currently closed. The San Sebastián tower also houses a 360° view restaurant on its top called Torre d’Alta Mar, where you’ll be able to enjoy Mediterranean cooking while admiring the beauty of Barcelona.
