The cable car route
Discover the delights of Montjuïc mountain, a symbolic site replete with history. Visit its parks and enjoy the unequalled views over the city of Barcelona.
Stops on the cable car route
The 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. This stop is optional, but highly recommended 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. However, if you like walking, you can get off at the Mirador stop and continue walking to Parc de Montjuïc.

The closest are the Botanical Garden, the Joan Brossa Gardens and the Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer Gardens.
This stop is right next to Montjuïc’s green zones, where in addition to resting you can also discover new plants and enjoy the best views of the city, thanks to its lookout points and terraces. The best places are Mirador de l’Alcalde, the Miramar Gardens and the Mossèn Costa i Llobera Gardens.
