A must when you are a tourist in Barcelona!
“I will give you” is the meaning of Tibidabo. A word originated from Latin and is the name of one of the greatest Barcelona attractions. It’s so high over there that you can feel as if you have the sky within your hands.
How to get to Tibidabo?
When you think about any interesting activities in Barcelona, Tibidabo is a must! And now you´ll wonder: How can I get there? Easy peasy, let´s set up a centric point Plaça Catalunya, there are few ways to get there, but the one I want you to enjoy the most is the Tibidabo Funicular experience. I won’t say more, let me know later how did it go.
Highest point in Barcelona…at least to go with regular outfit!!!
Ti-bi-da-bo, as some kids say, is located on top of “Sierra Collserola” a little more than 510 meters over the sea. It is considered the highest point of the mountainous group. The beautiful and picturesque destination has an interesting history and a natural charm. The panoramic views are the ideal decoration for your day, this is one of Barcelona seesights you can´t miss.
The mix of the old and modern architecture contrast in the elevation of the landscape. From that point, we can see The Expiatory Temple of Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is located in the height of the hill, and the Collserola Tower, a modern telecommunications antenna beautifying the mountains with its dimensions.
The Pastor Cruïlles Tower and Aigües Dos Rius Tower show traditional buildings in the area, the last one has 53 meters of height and an authentic cilíndric form adding more attraction to the visitors. Equally the comfortable La Florida Hotel welcomes the visitors with an amazing city view.
Take pictures from the wheel of Fortune!!!
On the other hand, Tibidabo is recognized for its variety of enjoyment spaces. The Tibidabo Amusement Park is the oldest of Spain operating nowadays and the third in Europe, is a perfect look out of the Barcelona City and it has some fun spreading areas, making the perfect place to go with kids.
Also to make the most beautiful pictures for your Social Media, this is the place, Yoda will say. The view is amazing and in a sunny day, you can create wonders with your camera.
The science lovers could find at Fabra Observatory a curious site where the circular rotating dome has a telescope inside through which were discovered 11 asteroids in the period between 1904-1937. The Science Museum is another wonder that offers to the visitors dynamic spaces about the branches of science.
For art and nature fans, Joana Village is impregnated with history about Jacint Verdaguer and also allows direct contact with the environmental nature of the forest. We recommend visiting it as a relaxing plan.
With so many beautiful places to enjoy, you can not lose the opportunity to visit Tibidabo. A wonderful place where the views from the mountains, the landscape, and the special vegetation, provide a great experience combining the enjoyment with the pure air of nature. Barcelona City has been blessed with this amazing site.
