Teleférico de Madrid offers residents and tourists one of the most evocative views of the city.
What a surprise! We had travelled to Madrid several times before and didn’t know about the Teleférico de Madrid (Madrid Funicular). See Madrid from an amazing vantage point in the sky, you can see monumental buildings, highways, parks and gardens at your feet.
The system has 80 cabins that each fit 6 passengers. Carrying a maximum of 1200 people per hour, it travels at 3.5 metres per second and takes 11 minutes to complete the journey between the two stations of Parque del Oeste with the Casa de Campo.
It has been run by the EMT (Municipal Transport Company) since January 2018.
