About FGC Funicular Vallvidrera and Tibidabo Bus:

In 1906 the company running the Sarria railway line got the contract to build a funicular railway 736 metres long, to link the old village of Vallvidrera with Barcelona and save having to climb up the slope between the Vallvidrera road and the village.

The Funicular is a racked railway with the descending car serving as counterweight for the ascending car, both being linked by a cable. it is a short journey of a few minutes starting at the lower station - Vallvidrera inferior (which interconnects with Peu de Funicular) and ending at Valvidrera superior. Noteworthy upper station, with its curvy lines and central European decoration, that was designed and built by the architect Bonaventura Conill.

The funicular offers some spectacular views of the city, which get better as you climb towards Vallvidrera.
