Officially known as the Transbordador Aeri del Port, this cable car linking Barceloneta to Montjuïc for the 1929 International Exhibition (but only finished in late 1931) and recently underwent a lengthy restoration. Each of the red cabins can hold 19 people, whisking them 230ft over the Port Vell.
If you don't buy a return ticket, have a drink at the panoramic café by the terminus on Montjuïc, or explore the adjacent Costa i Llobera Gardens. From here it's a 15-minute walk to both the Montjuïc Cable car and funicular down to the metro Paral.lel; another few minutes further along will bring you to the Fondació Miró.
