Great Views, even if we were hanging from a wire Jun 06, 2012
One of the stops on the hop on/off Barcelona tourist bus was at Teleferic de Montjuic. We were a little unsure as to whether to take a ride on the cable car, but given that it looked remarkably safer and more up-to-date than the Transbordador Aeri del Port cable car that crosses over the port of Barcelona and for the reasonable price of 9.60 euros for the return journey we thought that we would give it a go.

Having paid our euros we went through the turnstile and decided that we would wait for an empty cable car, partly for the reason as to we were both unsure as to how we were going to handle swinging from a great height in a small box attached to a wire!!! (Each car can hold up to eight people.) After waiting for ages our empty cable car came into view. Boarding was swift, you get about 15 seconds to board the car before the doors close automatically, though we were a little surprised to see that no-one actually sees you safely onto the ride. Securely trapped in the gondola with no-where to go we set off.

The complete circuit takes approximately ten minutes with the option to disembark at two stops along the way. We were surprised to learn that the ride is 752 meters in length and elevates to 85 meters.

A great way to overcome your fear of heights as the views are fantastic and to be honest you can't really tell that you are moving until you look down!!!
