Cable car views of the coastline and city, plus beautiful parks, the Miro museum and the site of the 1992 Olympics.

Does it look scary? It isn't. These smooth-gliding, slow-paced cable cars take you from Barceloneta up onto Montjuic, the big hill at the southern edge of Barcelona where the 1992 Olympics were held. Up here, you can wander past the Olympic size swimming pool and see the site of the Olympic flame. But there's much more on Montjuic to hold your interest: beautiful cliff-edge gardens for wandering with a lover. Spectacular vistas of the city and coast, full of industry and cruise ships. The Juan Miro museum full of his unique surreal paintings and sculptures. The Parc de Jardins – more gardens and walks. And the Castle, reached by yet another set of cable cars, offering still more panaromic views of the city.
