On the last day of my stay in Barcelona, a cold yet very sunny Sunday last December, I visited Tibidabo.

Tibidabo is the tallest mountain in the Serra de Collserola, and it rises north-west of Barcelona, of which you can enjoy a unique panoramic view, especially on clear days.

It also hosts a church, the Sagrat Cor, and Salvador Andreu’s historic amusement park, opened in 1899, and still operational, featuring most of the original rides. Definitely the place to get your head up in the clouds.

To reach Tibidabo you will ride the Vallvidrera funicular, which you can reach from the city through either the Tramvia Blau, or the more economical minibus service 111 (which I would recommend). More pictures after the break.
