Madrid, as with most of Spain’s cities, has a Teleferico, Cableway (in English). It takes you over the city to its highest peak.
Is the Teleferico de Madrid Worth the Money?
Before arriving in Madrid I was recommended a number of different Madrid attractions:
Real Madrid Stadium tour (if you can’t make it to a game)
And the Teleferico – Cableway
If you are traveling with kids and only have several days this could definitely be a good attraction. It takes you all the way up and gives you amazing views.
Kids aren’t used to cable cars so that in itself is a treat.
However, they are not cheap, and a family of four can easily pay up to $30.
However, the closeness you can get being so high up with your family – is priceless.
