Constructed in 2007, this panoramic cliff railway (not strictly a funicular) provides a unique way of getting from the coast to the top of San Pedro Mountain.

At the top, you will find a park, as well as the remnants of the Spanish army’s occupation of the region during the Spanish Civil War. This includes some massive coastal guns, as well as smaller artillery pieces. There is also an interesting hedge labyrinth found in the park.

The elevator is more than 300 feet long and a little over 200 feet tall. It’s truly a moving work of modern art. The trip from the bottom to the top takes a little over three minutes.
