Tickets for Montjuïc Cable Car
Rise above Barcelona with this panoramic cable car ride

Ride in comfort as you soak up panoramic views of Barcelona. The recently refurbished Montjuïc Cable Car is one way to see the city in style.
This cable car connects Barcelona to the top of Montjuïc hill, where you get the very best views of the Catalan capital. Hop on the cable railway (funicular) at the Paral·lel metro station and then take the cable car for a 750-meter-long trip to the top of Montjuïc, high above the city. You can hop on and off at any of the three stations: Parc de Montjuïc, Miramar and Castell de Montjuïc.
Along the way to the top, enjoy a bird's eye view of the entire city. Your final destination is the top of the hill, and the 17th-century hilltop fortress and former prison, Montjuïc Castle.
While atop Montjuïc gazing out over the city - and landmarks La Sagrada Familia and the Agbar Tower - don't forget to go around the back and take in views of the harbor - it's just as beautiful. Other options for exploration while you're in the area are other cultural highlights, including the Fundació Joan Miró, Poble Espanyol, and the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya.

Gaudí believed that man's efforts shouldn't try to surpass God's work, so he designed the tallest tower of Sagrada Familia to be 170 meters high, juuuuust 1m shorter than Montjuic, Barcelona's highest mountain.
Tiqets recommend you get the funicular from para el station to the cable cars. This is true. But don't make the mistake we did by travelling to that station thinking the funicular is free. It costs the same as a single metro ticket, so go to your nearest metro and travel to para el that way and then change to get on funicular. Save yourself walking or paying extra journeys!
The park itself it is beautiful for a walk and stroll and to seat under a tree with a glass of wine surrounded by the scent of pine trees. Worth a visit.
