The Funicular Railway to Montjuïc was built in 1928 and underwent a significant overhaul in 1992 due to the celebration of the Olympic Games in Barcelona.
In only 2 minutes and at a speed of 36km/h it takes you to the Parc de Montjuïc area, from which point you can take the cable car to the top of the Montjuïc Mountain.
The Funicular Railway to Montjuïc is the most time-efficient method of reaching the Montjuïc Mountain but if you prefer the scenic route and a lovely walk, you should head to Plaça Espanya using the metro and walk up from there.
It takes around ten minutes to get up the hill, yet a lot of it is serviced by outdoor escalators. Just head for the beautiful Palau Nacional (National Palace).
