About Tram Blau and Funicular Tibidabo

Views: 460. Updated: Sep 17, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

This is the blue Tram that runs from Avenida Tibidabo at plaza John F Kennedy to the lower Funicular station for the Funicular (Carrer de Queralt 20, Barcelona. 08020) that goes to Tibidabo.

Dr Salvador Andreu i Grau (Barcelona, 1841-1928) was a wealthy buisnessman who sold pharmaceutical products and decided to develope the land between Passeig de Sant Gervasi (passing via Plaza John F Kennedy).

The piano teacher of Salvador's children came back from a vacation is switzerland with a brochure about a funicular trip he took there so Dr Salvador Andreu decided to form a company to build the first funicular railway in spain to go from his new housing estate to the Tibidabo summit.

Bonaventura Roig i Queralt was the lead engineer and works comenced in 1900 with the railway making a test ascent on 3rd of july with the official inauguration at the end of October once tuning of the cables was completed.

The first carriages were made of wood and had six compartments divided between first and second class, with a maximum capacity of 80 passengers. In 1958 the wooden carriages were replaced by metal ones. The metal carriages were decomissioned in autumn of 2019 to be replaced with the modern glass cabins.

The funicular's route is 1,130 metres in length, and has an incline of 275 metres between the lower and upper station.
