Barcelona cable cars

Barcelona has 2 cable cars and 3 mountain trains (called funiculars) on Barcelona's two biggest hills which are called Montjuic hill and Tibidabo hill. A mountain funicular train is for steep hills and the train carriages are pulled up on a cable on train tracks. They are fun to visit for the spectacular views of Barcelona.
