BARCELONA: TIBIDABO

One sunday morning we went to the Tibidabo, a hill on the top of which there is a funfair perfect for children and teenagers. So, Tibidabo is a fantastic place for children in Barcelona where they can spend a funny day.

From Tibidabo hill you will also enjoy fantastic views of Barcelona.  Tibidabo is actually one of the highest points in the city and the views of Barcelona and the surrounding areas are truly spectacular. Views as interesting as the ones from the Park Güell or the Montjuïc Castle.

Besides the journey up the mountain in the enchanting turn-of-the-century Blue Tram and funicular railway is hugely enjoyable.
