The upward climb is an interesting and exciting journey. The view once we reach the top is absolutely stunning. There are no barricades at the top so if you are travelling with children you need to be extra careful. There is a small shop at...More

We LOVED this attraction. It’s easy to get to by car, bus or the little Lourdes train thingy. The train leaves every 30 minutes or so. We liked this so much, we did it twice! Day 1 was a bit overcast so we couldn’t resist...More

Hi Jackie, The funicular is very wheelchair friendly and has all the ramps, mechanical aids I would hope you require. Enjoy the views.
