The day we went was beautifully clear and a weekday. Apparently queues can be 2 hours long at weekends but we waited only half an hour or so. It was worth it! In spite of being on dozens of cable cars before, mainly for ski...More

If you have a good head for heights or even if you don't, this is a must do. The views as you ascend & from the to are truly spectacular.

This cable transport takes you 750 metres up to a magnificent landscape, appr. 2,000 metres in the Picos de Europa. Take your time to walk along cliffs and gletschers, a beautiful trip. With my fear of height I had to overcome my troubles, but it...More

Definitely do the one way up and take the path back down. You will see some amazing scenery. The cable car ride is not cheap, but saves a lot of time over walking to the top.

Arrived before opening and queued for 10 minutes. Efficient and impressive ride up and not too expensive one way. The walk down via Aliva took around 4 hours back to Fuente De at a leisurely pace with an 8 year old. Very little ascent mainly...More

As several others have mentioned, make sure you come here on a sunny day. The ride up is smooth and efficient. It isn't meant to be an attraction, unlike some of the Swiss ones, but more of a transport option. Over in less than 3...More

Just thought it worth posting that the cable car is currently shut until 30 October. Not sure why. We were only staying 20 min drive down the hill and it was still worth the drive for us because a) other half hates heights and probably...More
