The funicular railway is the quickest and shortest way to reach Montjuïc from the city. Catch the train from Parallel Metro Station (L4) for the one-stop ride. The Funicular counts as part of the main public transport system and as such you may use your travel card to make the journey up to the Montjuïc parks, and the attractions of the Olympic and Sports Museum, Olympic Stadium and Joan Miro Gallery.
From the Funicular station you can catch the cable car up even higher to Barcelona’s castle. If you prefer to walk, it is around a 15 minute journey uphill by foot or just 5 minutes by bus number 150.
