The Aeri (Cable Car) and the privileged views from the Montserrat Monastery
One of the most spectacular monasteries in Spain It is located on the Montserrat Mountain and, due to its altitude (more than 700m above sea level), perhaps the most interesting way, for the views, to reach it is by cable car, the “Aeri”From Montserrat.
In a straight line, there is only 1,350 m between the base station and the destination, the station in Montserrat Mountain. However, that less than a kilometer and a half takes approximately 5 minutes, so, at a leisurely speed of 5 m / s, we can enjoy the mountainous landscape at our feet and on our left (when we go up).
The cabins carry, standing, 30 passengers from 139 m above sea level from the base station to 683 m to which is the Montserrat Monastery station.
If you think that 5 minutes are many, you are wrong, because the cameras and mobiles do not stop taking pictures throughout the journey. In this video we summarize you in a minute and a half the experience of getting on the cable car to the Monastery of Montserrat, so that you are opening the traveling appetite.
