The Aerial Tramway del Port connects the Montjuïc hill with Barceloneta. It is operated by Teleféricos de Barcelona S.A. and is ideal to access the Fira de Barcelona or the Font Màgica fountain, emblematic places of Montjuïc.
The Barcelona Port Cable Car, known as Aeri del Port, is one of the main tourist attractions of the Catalan city. If you come by car you can park near the Aeri del Port in one of the parking lots where the route starts. Below we will give you some options that may be of interest to you.
The Barcelona Port Cable Car was inaugurated in 1929 for the International Exhibition of Barcelona and since then offers one of the best panoramic views of the city of Barcelona.
The Aeri del Port has a route that goes from the Torre de Sant Sebastià to Miramar, making a total of 3 stops.
It is open every day of the week from 10:30 am to 8:00 pm, and has a frequency of 10 minutes, that is, every 10 minutes a cable car passes. The entrance fee is between 11 and 17 euros per person, with the price varying depending on the start and destination of the tour.
The destinations that are offered to go with the Aeri del Port in Barcelona are:
Barcelona cable car from Montjuic mountain and timed entry from Barceloneta beach. You can see them here.
What is the Sant Sebastià Tower? It is that big tower of 78 meters high located in the port of Barcelona. The tower serves as the terminus of the Aeri del Port that runs through the port.
Near the Aeri del Port terminal you will find a variety of parking lots where you can park your car. Parking on the street can be a difficult task due to the few parking spaces in the area and the large amount of traffic and tourism in the area.
Although Torre de Sant Sebastià and Miramar seem to be close, the reality is that they are not. Miramar is located at the top of the mountain of Montjuïc and to access it, it is best to go by car or public transport that leaves you near the station.
If you want to go by car, in order to park comfortably before taking the cable car, you can try to leave it near the Aeri del Port or Montjuïc.
Parking in Montjuïc is relatively easy, there are free parking areas and regulated parking areas where you will have to pay a fee for the hours you park your car. The problem is that near the Aeri del Port there are very few places to park your car and you may be far from your final destination and have to walk uphill to access the Aeri del Port.
We recommend you to park nearby or, try to park further away and take public transport to get to the Aeri del Port. Do it with Parkimeter to compare rates and parking, and finally book a parking through the platform in a very simple and fast way. We suggest you do this in advance to secure your parking space in one of the parking lots that suits you best, and enjoy your cable car ride!
