The air shuttle 85 years flying over the city
“Savor watching the currency indescribable panorama of the city, the port and the Mediterranean. From the beach to the delightful gardens of Montjuïc in four minutes. ” That was the letter of the launch of the iconic cable car Port of Barcelona in the notice published in La Vanguardia in its Sunday edition of September 13, 1931. Now the iconic red trolleys meet 85, approaching a century life full of all kinds of anecdotes and setbacks.
The cable car Port, which began serving until two in the morning, was designed by Carles Buigas, author of the Magic Fountain of Montjuic. It construction began in 1928 on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1929 to connect the area of Montjuïc with its maritime section, but was not completed in time for lack of funds. At the end of the Port cable car began to fly over the city in 1931. But this was not the only surprise. In the Civil War interrupted his service, the cables were removed and the towers, especially that of Sant Sebastia, which houses a Mediterranean creative cuisine, became a strategic place in the defense of the port of Barcelona.
After the war the air shuttle was not at his best and was about to close in the late 50s Indeed, a sad event at that time forced remodeling. A crash of the sixth American fleet crashed leaving several casualties. In 1963 it was reopened and the late 90 underwent another major refurbishment.
During the tour, about 1,300 meters and ten minutes, you can see from the district of Barceloneta, yachts moored in the harbor to the gardens of Montjuïc. This air travel has three stops, the tower of Miramar in Montjuïc, Sant Sebastia Tower in the Barceloneta, and Jaume I, the highest with 101 meters in the port.
Although the cable car you can see another point of view the city, it has been rather an attraction that the locals have turned their backs and tourists are the ones who have enjoyed this medium to fly over the city.
