Montjuic Cable Car

Stops, Opening Times And Tickets

The Montjuic Cable Car is known as the Telefèric de Montjuïc in Catalan and is a fantastic way to get panoramic views of the city of Barcelona.

The cable car journey covers three stops at the top of Montjuïc Mountain and was completely modernised in 2007, when the modern closed cabins replaced the old open ones.

The cable car is run by the TMB - Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona - the Barcelona public transport company.

The high points of the journey are the spectacular views. I particulary like looking down as the cable car passes over The Gardens of Joan Brossa, which were opened in 2003.

From the cabins you can also see Plaça Catalunya and El Corte Inglés, Barcelona CathedralLa Sagrada Familia, Torre Agbar and the Fòrum de les Cultures area.

During the highest part of the telefèric journey, you get incredible views of Montjuïc Castle.





Telefèric de Montjuïc Stations

The Montjuïc Telefèric Cable Car has three stations:

  • The Parc de Montjuïc - next to the Funicular de Montjuïc Station.
  • The Mirador - this stop is only included on the return journey but it offers fantastic views of the city and is only 15 minutes from the Telefèric del Port.
  • The Castle - from here you can visit the Castell de Montjuïc.

Getting There

I would recommend taking either line L2 or L3 to Paral.lel metro station and then catching the Funicular de Montjuïc from there.

Both the metro and funicular journeys are included on the Barcelona Card.

You can also take the Barcelona Sightseeing Bus Turístic to the same stop.

Alternatively catch either Bus Number 50 or 55 from Plaça Espanya and get off at the Parc de Montjuïc stop, next to the Funicular Station..


The photo above shows the Funicular Station at the Parc de Montjuïc.

If you're coming by bus or on the Bus Turístic, this is where you need to get off to catch the Montjuïc Telefèric Cable Car.
