Tibidabo, the most spectacular view of Barcelona. Park and Church


Spectacular. Only. Exciting. Difficult to find different adjectives to describe the view of Barcelona from Tibidabo.

From the top of the Hill, and its 512 meters, you can admire the whole of Barcelona. A truly impressive view that is lost for tens and tens of kilometers.

A beauty that would not have gone unnoticed even by the most astute of figures. “All this I will give you … if only you will adore me”, in fact, the Devil temptator would have said to Jesus, according to a legend.

The beauty of the landscape. The trails. The presence of the oldest amusement park in all of Spain and the beautiful Sacred Heart … here are the reasons why you should visit Tibidabo during your holiday in Barcelona.
It will be less touristy than Park Guell, the Sagrada Familia and many other attractions but, not for this, it is less important.
A place dear also to a certain Woody Allen who shot some memorable scenes of his “Vicky Cristina Barcelona“ in these parts.

Tibidabo Barcelona



The Park is located on the outskirts of Barcelona. There are no direct connections to the city center. Allow for 2 changes and about 90 minutes (or even more) for travel by public transport.

With the S1 and S2 lines (which pass through Plaça de Catalunya and Gracia among other things) you get off at the Peu del Funicolar stop. The latter is directly connected to the Vallvidrera funicular which connects the lower part with the upper part by direct route (about 3 minutes).
At the exit of the funicular, go up to the right and almost immediately find the 111 bus stop to get to Tibidabo.

Alternatively, you can reach your destination with the Tibidabo funicular (currently closed for renovation) which connects the lower station of Cuca de Lum.



The name, the dominant position on the hill and the beauty bring to mind the Sacred Heart of Paris. A comparison that is anything but risky.
The Church is truly majestic and offers a truly impressive view. Two opposite flights of stairs lead to the upper part and from here, an elevator and a short flight of stairs lead to the top up to the Christ. It is the highest point you can access.
Admission to the church is free.
Only the lift is subject to a fee (costs €5 per person).


An evocative playground which, however small, retains an extraordinary charm. It is still the oldest amusement park in the country!
The games, with the inevitable Carousel, can be counted on the fingers of the hand. A ride on the Ferris wheel is a must, with spectacular views of the city.
The ticket price for the Panoramic area and the rides is not exactly cheap: €35 per person. Children from 90 to 120 cm pay the reduced rate of €14.
The ticket includes the trip by funicular.
Times vary according to the calendar. Attractions are generally open from 11am to 8pm.
