We paid €11 each to go from the harbour/beach side to the mountain side. The price wasn't unreasonable, but it took about 80 minutes to get to the cable car in a long line on a hot day. There are only 2 cars on the...More

This is a must when here. Head up the tower in lift which itself is an expieience. Take in the views whilst waiting for the cable car. Then in the car across the harbour great views a good buzz.

Had to wait 2 hours for a cramped 8 minute journey. This is definitely not worth it and wasted a good part of one of our two days in Barcelona.

Sorry for a late reply. You can go on a whim, there is no need to buy tickets in advance. The car leaves every half-hour or so, and there are no crowds, particularly now. In the worst possible case you'll have to kill time... More
