Teleferico, Madrid

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Until today, I hadn't known that there were cable cars above Madrid and I've lived here for 2 years!

Called the TELEFERICO, it was built in 1969. There are 80 cabins which travel 40 metres above the ground for 11 minutes over 2.5 km between the centre of Madrid and the Casa de Campo park to the west.

2 years Andy, you must have been looking at your shoes all that time then;-))) Looking at the map this looks like an ornate bridge,love those lamps.

Andy Rodker on October 31, 2012

Attractive bridge, yes.

I stress again Neil that, unlike most people, I make a point of LOOKING UP!!! It is simply that I never went to this part of the city before last weekend!


Best wishes, Andy
