  • Putting fear into fun, if heights aren't your thing, you might want to avoid the Sant Joan Funicular. However, if amazing views are your thing, go for a ride, you won't regret it! Seriously, though, this funicular is just like any you've been on but with scenery that you won't find anywhere else, though the actually vistas are limited as the funicular travels up what is essentially a giant crag. Still, the views from the top are worth it!
  • Very cool ride. Leads to great hiking too.
