Teleférico de Madrid

If you want an adventurous trip that provides a bird's eye view of Madrid, why not head for the cable car (Teleférico de Madrid), a unique tourist attraction in the city? Established in 1969, your journey starts from Paseo del Pintor Rosales, an elegant avenue that runs parallel to Calle Princesa (Metro: Argüelles), and takes you over the River Manzanares and into the Casa de Campo park.

A recorded commentary tells you all you need to know about the wonderful sights, whilst the aerial view gives you a remarkable perspective and provides excellent photo opportunities.

Many of Madrid’s famous places can be seen—Plaza de España and the Egyptian temple of Debod, the Parque del Oeste with La Rosaleda (a beautiful rose garden which hosts an annual rose festival in May), the Principe Pio station, the Torrespaña communication tower, the Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral and the Chapel of San Antonio de la Florida (famous for its frescoes by Goya). The four glass towers of modern Madrid are evident too.

The cable cars travel to a maximum height of 40 metres, and the entire 2.5km ride takes a little more than ten minutes from start to finish. At the end of the journey, in the Casa de Campo, there is a restaurant and bar complex with even more views to enjoy, and perhaps the best panoramic vistas of Madrid. The restaurant has a terrace where you can take a typical paella with a refreshing glass of sangria, or just an ice cream or coffee.
