About Getting to Montserrat via Aeri Cable Car - yellow cable car

The Aeri Cable car runs from FGC Aeri de Montserrat to The Montserrat Monastery and offers spectacular scenic views of the mountain.

History of the Aeri Cable Car

The Montserrat aerial cable car was opened in 1930 and connected the Montserrat Aerial station on the Barcelona-Manresa train line (FGC) and the Llobregat highway to the Monastery. As a result of damage sustained during the Spanish Civil War the cable car was out of use for a time, however, it still runs today using all the original mechanisms and structures.

The Bleichart company, whose headquarters are in Leipzig, designed and made the facility using German technology.

For technical information about the cable car, visit the website.

Getting to Getting to Montserrat via Aeri Cable Car - yellow cable car

Address: C55, Km 15, Monestrol de Montserrat. 08691

The quickest way is to get the FGC train From Plaza Espana to Aeri de Montserrat transfer onto the cable car. This is my recommended route as it offers the most scenic views. However there is also a slower and less scenic cremallera train that departs from Monistrol de Montserrat and arrives at Montserrat monastery via Monistrol vila.

Timetable and fares for the Aeri de Montserrat Cable car can be found on the website and vary depending on the season.

It was possible to buy a combined FGC + Aeri ticket at plaza Espana station. If you are planning to use the cable car ask about this at plaza Espana when you buy the tickets. It may no longer be available. IF not buy a return to Montserrat Aeri for the FGC and a separate cable car ticket at the lower cable car station ticket office.
