Barcelona IH trip Day 3

My final day in Barcelona and I headed to the port to get the cable car that runs from it to Parc de Montjuic (this is separate to the cable car that runs from the Montjuic funicular station).

This system is older than the one in Parc de Montjuic and is accessed by way of a lift from the port to the platform 70m overhead. There are only 2 cars in operation – one on each cable – that run back and forth along the 1.3km route. This is different from the Parc de Montjuic cable car, which operates with multiple cars on a continuous loop.

As a result of this, there are capacity issues and a long wait for the trip. All in all, it was about an hour between queueing to buy a ticket from a grumpy sales clerk though to actually boarding the car.

The trip itself brings you across the harbour (I couldn’t see the Loony Tunes cruise ship providing accommodation to Spanish police looking to thwart Catalonian independence in the port) to a station in Parc De Montjuic. There is also an intermediate station but this is closed.

To get back from the station at Parc de Montjuic, I walked to the funicular railway station (see Day 1) and took it and the metro back into the city.
