Why ride the Tramvia Blau?

The Tramvia Blau or blue tram is the oldest means of transport that is still active in Barcelona. Its route passes through streets of Modernista houses that lead to nature spots and magnificent views of Barcelona. It is without doubt one of the most charming ways of getting to the bottom of the Tibidabo funicular.

The Tramvia Blau is an example of the trams that were in use in Barcelona in 1900. Its current route is through an area of the city that is home to numerous Modernista and Noucentista buildings. It takes you to the bottom of Tibidabo Mountain, atop which you can enjoy magnificent views of Barcelona.

With the Tramvia Blau you can also access CosmoCaixa and the Tibidabo funicular, which takes you up Tibidabo Mountain, where the amusement park, the Temple del Sagrat Cor, the Torre de Collserola and the Fabra Observatory are.
