Thanks. We really loved this coastline. Great place to take photos, easy to get caught by the incoming tide though. I got wet a few times, fortunately the camera didn't.

Default Spot the cable car

These are two photos of the Picos de Europa, in Fuente De, where there is a cable car. The second photo is the upper station. Can you see the cable car?

I remember going up there 7 years ago (when it was the old cable car, seemed a lot more unsafe then). There was an english guy was on the same trip as us and was scared to death. He wouldn't do the return journey and insisted on walking back down... a 4 hour walk, off he went leaving his family to go down in the cable car (1 minute)

I was scared to bloody death when I went up in it too! Must have been about 7 years ago as well. As soon as we got to the top I just wanted to go back down as soon as poss to get it over with! I think we stayed up there about 10 mins, to Marina's annoyance.

It is insanely vertical. And just as you get to the top... it jolts a few meters back down again - heart attack!!!

It was set up in 1967, and as far as I know there has only been one problem once, probably around late 70's, when it stopped half way and people had to be taken down in a sac.

I have been in both cabins, the old and the new ones (from 2006), and I do not think there is much difference. The mechanism is still exactly the same.

I have done the walk down to Espinama quite a few times. It is quite a steep descent, and it is quite noticeable in the legs the following day if you do it quickly.
