    Accessibility at Telefèric de Montjuïc, Barcelona
    Montjuïc cable cars are entirely wheelchair accessible. These cable cars which are on a continuous loop can be paused, providing extra time for those with reduced mobility to board safely. The current folding seats allow additional space for wheelchair users and mobility scooters. Although Montjuïc Castle is quite difficult to wheel around due to large cobblestones, it’s overall an enjoyable experience taking in panoramic views of Barcelona and surrounding areas.

    Definitely worth it
    A must-do experience in Barcelona. There was a short queue when we visited on a Wednesday midafternoon. We bought a one way ticket to the top so we were able to walk down the hill which was a good decision in my opinion as it was lovely to walk through the park.

    Good views of city
    Short queue which would probably go faster if there was someone manning the cars as most going half empty. We had a whole car to ourselves on way up but on way down gets busy and those who have walked half way down May struggle to find space. Paid €18 for 2 persons for round trip. Not much to see at castle which is a separate entry price but nice views. Maybe more to see if you walk down

    Must do attraction in Barcelona!
    A fairly large queue to get onto the cable cars. Took about 10 minutes to get to the desk to pay. Didn’t matter if you’d brought a ticket already, everyone went through the same entrance. Paid €20 for 2 x one way tickets to the top (there are 3 different stops in total). The views are amazing and there is no way most could walk at the way up the hill. No one is manning people getting onto the cable car so we were lucky to be with just another family of 3. It is fairly high for those who don’t like heights. Definitely a must!

    No clear views at the top
    I was only in Barcelona for a day and a half and did a bus tour. One of the stops was Montjuïc and the view that I saw for a few seconds was amazing and I had to go back to see it properly. I saw the Montjuïc Cable Car and thought it was a no brainer so bought a ticket online and got on the L3 Metro, got off at Paral-El and took the funicular to the Cable car station. There was a queue at 5:30pm and buying a ticket online before didn’t allow me to queue jump, although it was cheaper. As an amateur photographer, I was really excited for this and the views on the cable car itself were amazing, I was looking forward to having some views at the top to stare at, take photos and simply enjoy. When we got to the top, the views were blocked by trees; ok I thought, there must be a better view point somewhere. I walked around the Castle and got a great view of the port, not very exciting. I then walked down the path, along a bit, down a bit but there was no view point. There were just a few gaps in trees. I considered going into the castle but it was further expense and I got the cable car back down disappointed. If you like castles, ports and the excitement of cable cars, feel free to do this. If you want the view, take the bus tour and get off at the Montjuïc stop, you won’t regret it.

    Wonderful view of the city - it’s a must!!
    The cable car costs 15 euros roundtrip. The route offers an amazing view of Barcelona and the ocean. When you get to the top you can visit the castle and walk around the grounds. Since it’s on a hill the view is spectacular. You can visit the museum inside the castle for free after 15.00 (3 pm).

    Great views but overpriced
    This tourist attraction is a little bit of a let down. In my opinion it is overpriced and not something you should rush to do when visiting Barcelona. Yes the views are spectacular and the experience of riding a cable car is fun but 60€ for a family of four is too much. If you really want to ride the cable car I suggest you pay for a one way ticket ride up the mountain, enjoy the views on the way up and from the castle then walk back down the hill. Once you get to the top if you want to see around the castle you will have to pay more money! Annoyingly there are no bathroom facilities anywhere. The bathroom facilities in the castle are only for paying customers. There are much better attractions in Barcelona to spend your money on.

    Spectacular Views, Wish It Was Longer
    I think that every visitor should experience the cable car ride at least once. The views of the city are unbelievable. You really get an understanding of the size of the city, along with a wonderful water view. My only complaint is that the ride is pretty short. It’s a crowded line to be in the car for 5 minutes or so.

    Amazing views
    Fun way to get to the top and there are beautiful views. You can take this cable car to the top of the mountain where the Montjuic Castle (Castell de Montjuic) resides. After you can either take the cable car back down or walk down. The areas where you walk are not beautiful so I would recommend you take the cable car back down. We purchased our tickets on line ahead of time as we heard the lines can be bad. However they seemed to keep the lines moving.

    Fun cable car and great views
    Fun cable car. Good views from the top. However do not get confused with the other cable car nearby which goes across the city, harbour and to the beach. We did both but we weren’t aware there were two. The walk up to the cable car involved many steps and it wasn’t pleasant, lots of rubbish and smells of urine.

I am not a lover of cable cars but my husband wanted to go, so I gritted my teeth, pulled on my big girl pants and booked tickets. Using a code from the Touristic Bus, we also received a further 10% discount.

It was a beautiful morning and not busy. The staff don’t cram people into the gondolas so there were just the two of us.

The car was very stable and gave us great views across the city and the sea.

We booked a round trip ticket and got off at the castle at the top to take more photos of the views.

Great trip, helpful staff and it all felt very safe.

Ok first thing. do not try to walk to the cable car... We did not realise what a trek it would be and we met quite a few others doing the same.
Instead, take the metro to Para-lel where you can get the Montjuic funicular 'train' which takes you directly to the base of the cable car. The ticket for this train is included in the zone 1 casual ticket for the metro which was great value at €7.95 for 10 journeys!
Anyway, This is a quirky train in itself.
The ticket for the telerific was roughly €14 for the return trip and there are 2 stops - the castle at the top and an interim one at Mirador on the way back down.
The views from both stops is fabulous and there is a gorgeous park at Mirador just across the street from the cable car stop with interesting patterns on the ground made with mechanical parts, stepping stones.. and a lovely view.
The castle at the top. also had fab views and was nice to walk around but we didn't bother paying a entrance fee to visit inside as we weren't that interested.
I have to admit that I really quite enjoyed this relaxing experience, the views over the city were great trying to pinpoint the landmarks across the city and the cruise ships in port on the other side. If you have lots of time you could spend quite a while around here. Across the street from the main entrance is the municipal swimming pool which is currently undergoing work but there is a cafe open there which again offers amazing views across the city.

I visited this adventurous cable car on a windy rainy day in November. End of year, it closes by 6.00 pm, I reached at 5.45pm so only had a chance to enjoy it One-way to the castle and use bus on way down. Still I would repeat it next time I visit Barcelona as it was quite memorable.

To reach the bottom station "Parc de Montjuïc", you can use the furnicular (Funicular de Montjuïc) from Parallel which is a great ride in itself. I had Hola Barcelona card during my visit and the furnicular is free with the card. Tickets for the cable car are quite reasonable for a 10-12 minute ascent. The whole journey over heavenly city of Barcelona is worth every second of beauty. Once at the top, the view from the castle if mesmerizing, a snapshot of mind to remember forever.

As I couldn't get hold of a return ticket and it was quite cold to wait for the cab. I accompanied other late visitors with me to the nearby bus stop. Late evening with breeze and drizzle, waiting at the stop with strangers in low light was just like a movie. I had to wait 20 minutes for the bus which took me to Placa d'Espanya.

Teleferic De Montjuic is an experience which cannot be interpreted properly on a text review or even pictures. I something to definitely go for during every visit to Barcelona.

Have you ever been a moving cable car a hundred meters up in the air that is stopped abruptly? Not just once, but THREE TIMES? Well let me tell you, it's not fun — it’s a nightmare come to life. It swings its passengers back and forth high in the air in a nauseating manner until it finally comes to a stop.

That's what happened to me and my partner as we rode down from Montjuic. Over a period of ten minutes, the cable car was stopped, reversed for a few hundred meters, was stopped for the second time, moved forward for the second time, was stopped for the third time, and then finally moved forward for the third time.

Over these ten minutes, no announcement was made about what was happening. My partner and I were both terrified and tried calling Teleferic de Montjuic over the phone. We could only get through to a voicemail.

When we finally got down to the platform, we asked the operator what happened. He said a couple guys had hopped onto a cable car without paying, and so the operator pulled their car back to the platform.

So apparently, two non-paying customers means that hundreds of paying customers had to endure this nightmare. There was no apology, and no refund of our expensive €14 tickets.

Great veiws from this lovely cable car ride and not to be confused with the other from the port area where you stand up. This ride makes it's way up to the top of the hill where the castle is with panoramic views of the city and mountains beyond. Yes it is a short ride but you can also get off and back on half way up. In my opinion well worth a visit.

This is the cable car that you catch from Avinguda Miramar (stop for the open top tourist busses) and takes you up to Montjuic castle. The ride is in 4 person cars that have large panoramic windows and come every 30 seconds.
There’s invariably a queue but it moves fast and I think we waited for 5 minutes before getting to the ticket booth. You can book online and get 10% off a return ticket but it won’t get you on any quicker as the automatic gates are turned off at the bottom and you have to queue up with everyone else to show your ticket anyway.
The pricing is a complete rip off at 10.5 Euros for a single fare or 16 euros for a return ticket and there are no concessions, but at least you are afforded excellent views on the way up and the walk all round the castle then provides further excellent views over Barcelona and the new Marina developments as well as Barcelona’s container port (where they dock the cruise ships) and it’s only from up here that you get a true perspective for how massive a container port Barcelona is.
We didn’t bother going in the castle as our primary objective was the views and to walk the peak. In this respect I would recommend that when you get to the far West Point of the castle walk down to the Mirador del Migdia and here you will find La Caseta del Migdia, one of the few bar /cafes on the peak.

Taking the cable car is the most convenient way to reach the Montjuic hill if you don't have a car.
However, likewise many other attractions in Barcelona it comes with a hefty price.
Ride takes around 10 min and you have great city views from your cabin.
If you have your rented car, you can drive up, park on several free parking lots and enjoy the same views from top for free.

Truly enjoyed the candle carts and due to Barcelona transport system it was so easy to get to the cable carts buying tickets on the hola Barcelona website is cheaper.

Waited in the line for 6 mins as the cable carts come consistently, depending how busy you can get the carts to yourself or have to share but it’s quite specious so you never feel cramped.

The views are wonderful both going up and coming back down a must do when in Barcelona.
