The Funicular de Montjuïc, or Montjuïc funicular, is a funicular railway in the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia. The line is largely in tunnel and connects the Barcelona Metro Paraŀlel station (connection to lines 2 and 3) with the hill of Montjuïc and the various sporting and other facilities there. The funicular uses the same fares as the metro and is listed on maps as part of the metro network. It is operated by Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB), which also operates most of the metro lines.
The line was opened in 1928, in order to serve the International Exhibition of 1929. It was extensively reconstructed in 1992, in order to cope with traffic to and from the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys and other facilities used for the 1992 Summer Olympics, situated on the Montjuïc hill.
