How to get there: climbing the hill can be on foot or on the Teleferico de Puerto cable car. To the top of the hill and the castle Castel de Montjik leads another smaller cable car – Teleferico de Montjuïc. The lower station of this cable car is just next to the Montjuïc FUNICULAR cable car stop – this is another way to get to Montuik. The funicular leaves from the Paral·lel metro station and is part of the city transport system, so it does not need to buy a separate ticket.
