Tibidabo is the highest mountain (512m) in the bordering back country of Barcelona. Like the Montjuïc, however which is located at the sea and a little smaller, you will get wonderful views on Barcelona from there. All attractions are lined up from left to right of the sight with the Mediterranean Sea in the background.
The church Temple de Sagrat Cor has been finished on the summit of Tibidabo in 1961. Furthermore there is an amusement park which feels a little boring according to contemporary scale. In addition the heavy fees are scaring off. After successfully managing the ascension with different means of transport, you will be rewarded with nice views on Barcelona and its back country.
a. Bus directy from Plaça Catalunya to the amusement park on top (approx. 3€ per trip).
b. With the Ferrocarril (FGC Line 7) from Plaça Catalunya to Av. Tibidabo / Pl. John F Kennedy (public transport ticket). Now with bus 196 (same public transport ticket) or pricey with the old cable car Tramvia Blau (approx. 5€) up to the Funicular. Afterwards take the Funicular to the summit (approx. 7,50€).
Currently there are construction works at the Ferrocarril – ask at the information desk at Plaça Catalunya directy at the tracks for the best connection.
