Since 1928, the Montjuïc funicular railway has been working tirelessly, connecting the city to the mountain and providing people with a fast way to climb the mountain.

  • Unusual transport

Memory of other times

The International Exposition, held in Barcelona in 1929, transformed Montjuïc, recovering it for public use. One of the numerous legacies from that time is the Montjuïc funicular railway, the cable transport system that was opened in 1928 to facilitate access to the mountain.

This historical mode of transport connects the city, from Avinguda del Paral·lel, with Avinguda Miramar, where a large number of the Montjuïc’s sports and cultural facilities are located.

Originally, the funicular railway had a second stretch that took passengers up to the castle, but with the opening of the cable car, this stretch of the railway fell into disuse. Renovated for the first time in 1992 for the Olympic Games, it was the second renovation in 2005 which gave it the modern appearance it has today.

Climbing the mountain

The funicular railway operates as part of the metro network and its initial stop is in the Paral·lel metro station itself, where is connects with lines L2 and L3. The second and final stop, the Parc de Montjuïc station, is situated on the mountain, on Avinguda de Miramar, which extends to Avinguda de l’Estadi, at a height of 80 metres above sea level and is a short distance from the Montjuïc cable car. This is the location of some of the most important cultural amenities in the park, such as the Joan Miró Foundation, the Palau Sant Jordi and the Olympic Stadium. The journey is a real pleasure.
