Barcelona cable cars & funicular mountain trains

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.

Funicular de Tibidabo - Cuca de Llum (The Firefly) - funicular train to Tibidabo funfair. The funicular Tibidabo hill train was the first of its kind in Barcelona and Spain. The train was built to take passengers to the top of Tibidabo hill and Tibidado fairground park. Since its inauguration in June 2021, the newest version, called the 'Cuca de Llum' has become the new way to access Tibidabo. From Plaça Doctor Andreu, and in just 4 minutes, the new funicular allows you to go up in the most sustainable and fastest way and enjoy spectacular views during the journey. The new access gate to the Tibidabo Amusement Park and Panoramic Area brings the magical mountain closer to the city of Barcelona with convenient and quick access.
The vintage blue tram Tramvia Blau that used to make the journey up to the base station of the Funicular de Tibidabo has been out of service for some years. There is a replacement bus service.
