BENALMÁDENA CABLECAR IS CURRENTLY CLOSED 

Due to the mobility restrictions established by the health authorities, the start of the 2021 season is delayed. Until the opening of the park, the whole team is preparing for the new season in the hope that the circumstances will allow us to be visited as soon as possible. We sincerely thank you for your understanding.

Due to the advance of the end of the 2020 season, customers with tickets purchased for dates after 8/11/2020 will be able to request a change for the 2021 season by sending an email to selwo@selwo.es with the information regarding their tickets, including the date they wish to visit the park. For tickets purchased through external distributors, requests for date changes must be handled through them.


PERSEIDS WEEK IN BENALMADENA CABLE CAR

PERSEIDS WEEK IN BENALMADENA CABLE CAR

The Open-Air Planetarium at Benalmádena Cable Car celebrates Perseids Week from August 10th to 16th: the meteor shower is also known as St. Laurence’s Tears.  The astronomical date at the Cable Car starts at 10 p.m. everyday and takes place on the summit of Monte Calamorro, at an altitude of 800 metres, in a completely natural setting, and with the unparalleled backdrop of the Mediterranean firmament.

Experts from the Sky Classroom will be in charge of these special sessions dedicated to the Perseids, explaining how and why this spectacular meteor shower occurs; this phenomenon takes place once a year, and in 2019 its activity will climax on 12 and 13 August. The sessions also cover other exciting themes related to the night sky such as recognising the constellations, bright stars, planets, the Moon and its impressive relief… And everything that the Mediterranean sky offers on summer nights.

The date with the Perseids is part of the Magical Nights of the Benalmádena Cable Car, which start at 7 p.m. every day in August. These Magical Nights offer a wide range of activities: in addition to the Open-Air Planetarium, there is the Birds of Prey Display, which takes place daily at 8 p.m and the recently incorporated giant chess whose pieces have been made as recycled material.

Benalmádena Cable Car offers a spectacular trip in comfortable modern cars, each holding up to four people, uniting the Benalmádena Coast and the summit of Monte Calamorro -one of the highest points on the Costa del Sol- for enjoyment of a unique landscape. In addition, the summit of Monte Calamorro has a selection of paths for walking routes and strategically placed viewpoints for enjoying spectacular landscapes from a height of around 800 metres above sea level, and spectacular daily falconry exhibitions, which in summer also take place every day at 8 p.m.

Benalmádena Cable Car is open every day in August from 10 a.m. until midnight.
