Reopened in 2007, the Montjuïc Cable Car ambles through the air along one of Barcelona’s most iconic places — the mountain of Montjuïc. We will visit castles, gardens and even an Olympic stadium, all features that remind us of some of the most important moments in cosmopolitan Barcelona’s history so far. Come on and ride the cable car!

Waltz in the Montjuïc Cable car with a self-guided audio tour on your phone designed by an accredited expert. Listen to fascinating stories, based on an award-winning storytelling concept, and gain great insights into one of the most iconic landmarks of Barcelona, the Montjuïc Cable car and its attractions. Start your tour from the Parc Montjuïc Stop and continue to meet Castell Stop, getting acquainted with its unique attractions, and, finally, reach the final Mirador stop.

This is an unmissable opportunity to experience Montjuïc Cable Car at your own pace with a captivating audio tour on your phone.

The cable car’s route starts at Parc de Montjuïc, where the cable car goes directly to Castell de Montjuïc without making any stops. On the return route, the Montjuïc Cable Car stops at Mirador de l’Alcalde. Even though this stop is optional, it is highly recommended if you want to relax in the Miramar Costa i Llobera, Cinto Verdaguer and Joan Brossa gardens, with the best views over Barcelona. The return route ends in Parc de Montjuïc. If you like walking, you can get off at the Mirador stop and continue walking to Parc de Montjuïc.

Then take the first street on the right, Passeig de Santa Madrona, and walk for about five minutes until you reach a crossroad. Then, continue straight along to the Montanyans Avenue until you see the Museum.
