There is a big confusion with the cable cars and the funicular of Barcelona. There are 3: Montjuïc’s Funicular, Montjuïcs’s cable car and the port cable car. Each of them has its particularity.
- The Port’s cable car (Aeri del Port) :
This astonishing construction, which is more than 80 years old, offers a staggering aerial view of Barcelona.
The cable car’s passengers will be let down the castle of Montjuïc. Once they are at this point, they will be able to choose between going up walking or by another cable car that is more modern and recent, the Montjuïc’s one. It allows to go on the top of the mountain at 170 m high and, of course, to enjoy the beautiful views of Barcelona.
How to get there :
Sant Sebastià Tour (near the W Hotel, at the end of the port).
Metro : Barceloneta station, line 4.
The touristic bus also stops there.
Miramar, on Montjuïc’s mountain.
Metro : Parallel station, lines 2 and 3.
At this place you will find the teleferic station of Montjuïc that will take you to the top of the mountain.
