Tibidabo Offers Stunning Views of Barcelona

Tibidabo offers the best views of Barcelona & the Mediterranean

One of the great ways to use a Barcelona BusTuristic or Hop On – Hop Off pass is to stop in Tibidabo. The stop will take you one to two hours, but it will be well worth the time and money. Tibidabo is the tallest mountain in the Serra de Collserola. Thus, the views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean are stunning – as stunning as the views from Montserant

Upon reaching the Tibidabo bus stop, you will notice Torre Andreu, also referred to as La Rotunda. La Rotunda was built by Adolf Ruiz i Casamitjana in 1906.

Torre Andreu, also known as “La Rotonda ” is a neoclassical modernist building that was completed in 1918. It is famous for its distinctive oriental pagoda pictured above, which has intricate mosaic work on the inside and columns.

Just outside of this building is the tram, which takes you to the funicular for the breathtaking views atop the mountain. The funicular opened in 1901. It is one of three funiculars in Barcelona. The other two are the Funicular de Vallvidrera and the Funicular de Montjuïc.

At Tibidabo, you will also find the Sagrat Cor church and Tibidabo Amusement Park. Sagrat Cor is entirely appropriate as this is where it is reported that the devil tempted Jesus. Tibidabo originates from the Latin Vulgate Bible verses, Matthew 4:9 and Luke 4:6. The phrase, tibi dabo, means I will give to you, which was supposedly said to Jesus by the devil as they looked down from a mountain on the kingdoms of the world. A sculpture of the Sacred Heart by Josep Miret Llopart sits on top of the church.

Transportation Alternatives

If the tram is not working, the Metro bus stop is a few feet away, and it too will take you to the funicular in a short 10-15 minute bus ride.
