Visiting Fabra Observatory:

The visiting times and types of visit vary and it is best to consult the website to book.

At the time of writing this I attended on a Sunday morning and paid 3 euros for a guided tour from the on shift astrologer. Also available are evening star gazing visits. The Observatory also hosts evening Dinners and telescope viewing of the planets.

Getting To Fabra Observatory:

Currently, the best way to get to Tibidabo is to take the FGC Funicular de Vallvidrera to Vallvidrera superior then the TMB 111 Bus or walk to Tibidabo. All segments of this jourmney are in Zone 1 so a T casual ticket can be used.

The 111 Bus is operated by TMB. Peu de Funicular and the Funicular de valvidrera stations are on the FGC Valles lines.
