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.

Thank you Carmen.

I have said to my girlfriend that we have to ride in a cabin soon. I felt really stupid not knowing they existed!

Best wishes, Andy

Me acabas de dar una buena idea. Subir al teleférico y hacer desde allí fotos. De la catedral de La Almudena sin duda lo más interesante es la cripta y la cúpula. Cuando subas podrás visitar también el balcón de la catedral, que dá enfrente al Palacio Real. También se pasa por el Museo Diocesano, que es bastante feo y poco interesante. En las esquinas de la cúpula hay miradores y planos de los edificios que se distinguen desde allí. Merece la pena pagar 4 euros por la entrada. FAV+LIKE. Feliz martes. Saludos cordiales .

Thank you, Nunila!!

I have tried to take the cable car on many occasions with my girlfriend. We walk to the Moncloa boarding point and every time we have a problem; either it is closing or closed because we are too late or it is having repairs done!

Next time!!! ??

But a good idea, certainly :o)

Best wishes, Andy
