Barcelona cable cars and mountain railways

Barcelona cable cars

Barcelona has 2 cable cars and 3 mountain trains (called funiculars) Most are on Barcelona's two biggest hills which are called Montjuic hill and Tibidabo hill. Both are fun to visit for the spectacular city views. A mountain funicular train is designed for short and steep hills. It usually has a top station and a base station. It has two passenger carriages which are pulled or lower on a slope by the same cable which loops over a pulley wheel at the top station.
