Today in this blog, we will cover:

*The Cable Car Montjuic is not to be confused with the Port Cable Car, which is located in Barcelona Beach, and it goes from the Torre de Sant Sebastian to the Miramar gardens on Montjuic.

What is the Teleferic?

The Teleferic Montjuic, the cable car which goes up to Montjuic Hill, gives you an unique opportunity to discover Barcelona from a panoramic view. It gets you a bird-perspective view of the city while relaxing in the cabin of the cart. 

The cable car is a route of 750 metres, allowing you to gaze upon the city and enjoy a mesmerising journey to the Montjuic Castle. The Montjuic cable car starts, as it implies, at the foot of Montjuic Hill, which is the living history of the city, and it ends at the Montjuic Castle. From above, you can spot the Sagrada Familia, The Camp Nou, The Magic Fountain de Montjuic, and the Torre Agbar. Having Barcelona under your feet, the Barcelona Cable Car is the perfect way to enjoy the city.

Teleferic de Montjuic Tickets

At this point, we are sure you´re wondering about how much the Teleferic de montjuic ticketprice is. The answer depends on whether you want to enjoy a full trip or just half of it. If you want to stop at half of the trip at Mirador de Montjuic, and then visit some of the gardens, like the Costa i Llobera gardens, Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer gardens, or Joan Brossa gardens, the ticket price is the same, but you can get in the cable car again to get up to the top. We recommend you to buy a round-trip ticket to better enjoy the trip and get the best views of Barcelona after having enjoyed the day in the gardens.
