Barcelona information

Tibidabo

At 542m (1778ft), Tibidabo is the highest hill in the wooded range that forms the backdrop to the city. If the air's clear, it's a great place for views over Barcelona. The locals come up here for some thrills at the amusement park Parc d'Atraccions (Amusement Park), which has rides and a house of horrors. As hair-raising as anything at the Parc, however, is the glass lift that goes 115m (126yd) up to a visitors' observation area at Torre de Collserola telecommunications tower. The more sedate can find solace in Temple del Sagrat Cor, Barcelona's answer to Paris' Sacré Coeur; it's even more vilified by aesthetes than its Paris equivalent. Looming above Tibidabo's funicular station, it is actually two churches, one on top of the other. The top one is surmounted by a giant Christ and has a lift to the roof.
