Mt. Tibidabo Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The highest mountain in the Collserola range surrounding Barcelona, Mt. Tibidabo offers one of the city’s most magnificent view points. There are several places to take in the 360-degree vistas, including the neo-Gothic Sagrat Cor Cathedral, Torre de Collserola TV tower, and the popular Parque de Atracciones amusement park.
Featured in the film Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Mt. Tibidabo is popular among couples and families who come to soak up its views and amusements. The mountain itself is free to visit, but the amusement park and TV tower observation deck charge separate admission fees. Families traveling with children can combine a visit to Tibidabo and its theme park with a tour of the labyrinth at Parque del Laberinto de Horta.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Tibidabo Mountain is a must-visit for couples and families.
- Book your tickets in advance to skip the line at the amusement park.
- Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat; some areas on the mountain lack adequate shade.
- Public transportation to Tibidabo, as well as many of the amusement park attractions, is wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There
There are a few ways to get up the hill to the top of Tibidabo, but the most popular (and fun) is to ride the funicular railway from Plaça Dr. Andreu to the top. The hop-on hop-off tourist bus also stops at the top of the mountain.
When to Get There
Mt. Tibidabo is always accessible, and the amusement park and other attractions are open during the daytime, year-round. In the summer months, plan to visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the hottest hours. Tibidabo Mountain is an excellent spot to watch the sunset.
One of the quirkier attractions on Tibidabo Mountain is the Automata Museum: a collection of some 40 vending machines and animatronic fortune tellers from the 19th and 20th centuries. The oldest, the Pallasso Mandolinista, dates back to 1880. The museum is located in the Panoramic Area of the amusement park.
