8 things to do and see in Tibidabo area.

Tibidabo is the highest peak in the sierra de collserola mountain behind Barcelona. It is famous mostly for the amusement park inaugurated in 1901 but also boasts a temple with tourist roof access to the viewpoint, a historic observatory and the world famous Collserola telecoms tower with a viewing floor.

There are 3 main ways to get to tibidabo depending on your budget.

The cheapest public transport option is to take the FGC from Plaza Catalunya to Peu de Funicular and change onto the Valvidrera funicular which terminates in the mountain village of Valvidrera. From here there is a 10 minute bus ride or 20 minute walk to Tibidabo. All these transport networks are part of the Barcelona integrated fare system so count as one trip on a travel card such as T-casual.

The most expensive option is to use the FGC to go to Av.Tibidabo then transfer onto a TMB bus to got to Plaza Doctor Andreu. (This bus section used to be covered by Tram Blau but it is currently closed for refurbishment) Both the FGC and bus are part of the Barcelona integrated fare system. From plaza Doctor Andreu there is a Funicular that goes to Tibidabo amusement park. This is not part of the Barcelona integrated fare system but run privately by the amusement park and a return fare is 12 euros for adults. They also sell integrated tickets for the funicular and entry into the amusement park.

The final option is to get to Tibidabo by walking through the Collserola natural parc. I have a couple of routes, one starting from FGC Av.Tibidabo and the other from FGC Valvidrera Baixador.

Happy Exploring!
