About the city

La Vanguardia is the name of one of the city’s newspaper, and the vanguard is exactly where Barcelonans are used to finding themselves, for they are residents of Spain’s most progressive city. Beautiful, sprawling Barcelona, filling a great basin ringed with hills on the western end of the Mediterranean, is the embodiment of Catalonia’s artistic genius and commercial inventiveness. Divided into 10 districts each with its own character, the Gothic Quarter is a splendid medieval quarter and the old part of town, which stretches from the seafront to La Rambla. It is here that you’ll find the city’s oldest buildings, narrow streets, churches and the cathedral, La Seu. It also has a good selection of bars, cafes and some quirky independent stores. La Rambla, the most famous street in the city, runs through the heart of the city and provides outdoor theatre on a grand scale. The famous Eixample holds many of Antoni Gaudi’s famous modernist buildings. By far the most famous and extravagant site in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia. If he building is ever completed, it will lokk like a model in the crypt, in the meantime, don’t pass up the opportunity to climb or be lifted to the towers, and wander amid the bridges, steps and crannies of the façade. Barcelona is a great city for arts from opera to architecture, and the meeting point between Spain and the rest of Europe.

Montjuic cable car

day 1 - Billete de ida y vuelta
Take in beautiful Barcelona from a bird’s eye view and discover its famous landmarks and architecture from a completely new perspective. Head to the skies for the best views!

Enjoy the most breathtaking views of Barcelona from the comfort of the Montjuic cable car. This modern and secure service covers a 750-metre route with three stations: Montjuic Park, the famous Mirador de l’Alcalde lookout and Montjuic Castle. From the gondolas you can see sights such as the Plaça de Catalunya, Santa Eulalia Cathedral, the Sagrada Familia, the port, the Olympic Village, the Agbar Tower and the Forum.

Starting from Montjuic Park, climb to the castle at the summit of the mountain, which is perched 170 metres above city and harbour. The journey itself lasts about 10 minutes and there are services on average every 20 minutes. Each station is close to a number of major attractions, with the Mirò Foundation, National Palace, Poble Espanyol and Mies van der Rohe pavilion all near the Montjuic Park station. The Mirador station – which can be alighted at on downhill journeys only – offers easy access to the Mossèn Costa i Llobera Gardens, a paradise for cactus fans, and the Mirador de l’Alcalde itself, from where you can enjoy amazing views of the city and the Collserola Mountains. Admire Barcelona’s perfect grid shape and appreciate its true, vast scale. The station at the summit serves Montjuic Castle (admission not included).

The cable car was completely renovated a few years ago and state-of-the-art gondolas have been installed. All gondolas have been fully adapted for patrons with reduced mobility and baby buggies can be carried on board.

Start/opening time: 10am.
End/closing time: 6pm from November to March; 7pm in April, May and October; and 9pm from June to September.
