Why visit Tibidabo?

Tibidabo is known by Barcelona residents as the Magic Mountain. In addition to being a major green space, it offers a curious mix of old and modern buildings and of calm and action, and it has one of the best views of Barcelona. Some of its outstanding features are:

  • The Tibidabo Amusement Park: It is Spain’s oldest and one of the first in Europe. It was inaugurated in 1899 and still conserves some of its original attractions.
  • The Temple del Sagrat Cor: This monumental neo-Gothic Expiatory Church of the Holy Heart of Jesus is crowned by a bronze statue of the Sacred Heart and has a lift to access the top, from where you can see all of Barcelona. Known as the Church of Tibidabo, its interior contains a magnificent crypt whose walls are lined with alabaster and decorated with biblical scenes and mosaics. 
  • Torre de Collserola: This tower, which was built for the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, was designed by the architect Norman Foster. It is 288 metres tall and the tenth floor, which is 115 metres high, has a lookout point with the best panoramic views of the city. 
  • The Fabra Observatory: Inaugurated in 1904, it is owned by the Barcelona Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts. It is the world’s fourth oldest active observatory. Its activity currently focuses on astronomical research in addition to collecting meteorological and seismic data.

The best of Tibidabo Amusement Park

Some of the attractions you'll find in this Park are the classic hall of mirrors, better known as Miramiralls, the mythic Automata Mountain and the aeroplane that flies over the park, a simulator that will make it feel like you're actually flying while taking in the spectacular views. 

In addition to reliving your childhood on these nostalgic rides, you can download some pure adrenaline on the park's new attractions such as the recently inaugurated Muntaya Russa roller coaster. You'll feel the giddiness of each drop and the speed of the most zigzagging curves.   

Feel like a dwarf in the Gold Mine as you ride on trunks that go through water or scream in terror in Hotel Krüeger seeing the characters from your favourite horror films. In the Witches and Wizards Den (L'Embruixabruixes), you'll be able to return to the world of sorcery while touring the park in a hanging wagon.   

Passengers! Climb on board the Virtual Express, a ‘high speed’ railway that will take you to a new virtual reality world. Don’t forget to board the Piratta or the Diavolo, Tibidabo's first attractions. Your little ones will also have plenty of fun with the great variety of children’s attractions.

Tibidabo Viewpoint

If you want to enjoy the highest views of Barcelona, then you just have to go up the Mirador del Tibidabo, roughly 500 metres above sea level and at the heart of the magic mountain. You will have a great panoramic view of the entire valley the city lies in from there. You can contemplate the Mediterranean Sea, El Prat Airport and the Port of Barcelona.

We recommend you go up the Mirador del Tibidabo at night to enjoy the views it offers of Barcelona.

Another good viewpoint on Tibidabo is at the entrance to the Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, situated on a large esplanade with views of Barcelona.  

The new funicular, the Cuca de Llum

Tibidabo has a new funicular, the Cuca de Llum, which is a gateway to and provides your first experience of the Park. It is a faster, more efficient funicular, with capacity for 252 passengers. Designed to enable passengers to contemplate a unique panoramic view of Barcelona, it has interactive screens that visitors can interact and entertain themselves with during the journey.

From the Tramvia Blau - Tibidabo stop on the Blue Route, you can take the Tibibus T2C shuttle, which will leave you at the lower station of the new funicular, the Cuca de Llum, which you can board to go up to the Tibidabo Amusement Park.
