Tibidabo

The 745-foot high Tibidabo is also known as the "Muntanya Màgica" ("Magic Mountain") and is very popular with the locals, especially on weekends. The Tramvia Blau is a nostalgic tram line built at the end of the 19th century. It goes past some charming Art Nouveau villas halfway up the mountain, where the funicular railway continues the journey to the very top. Visitors flock to the numerous picnic sites and to the Parc d'Atraccions. You can easily spend a whole day at the amusement park, with its Ferris wheel, roller coaster, merry-go-rounds, snack bars, miniature railway and much, much more.

Work on the magnificent neo-Romantic El Sagrat Cor de Jesús church, which is built right on the very peak of the mountain and topped by a gigantic figure of Christ, was not completed until 1952. The top of the tower, like the top of the nearby 843-foot radio tower Torre de Collserola, offers a magnificent view down over Barcelona: the rooftops of the city, the Mediterranean to the east and Montjuïc to the south.
