Took an hiking experience... walking from Plaza Kennedy to the top of Tibidabo. It was like exciting yet tiring. I wore a wrong shoes and hurted my feet all the way to the top. Got a chance to have a picnic with traditional Catalan F&B prepared by the host. Also had a wonderful opportunity to see herbs and beautiful flowers along the way to the top. My host was also saying of we were luckly we could see wild animals and birds.There are a lot of options to go to the top: hiking, cycling, private vehicle or using public transportation ~ tram or bus. One of the bus is come/from Plasa Catalunya and it costs 3 € (rate 2018), one way. Pretty convinience.
This was worth walking 8 kilometers from inside Barcelona for. Breathtaking architecture mixed with panoramic views and rides for the kids!
High above the city of Barcelona, on Tibidabo mountain, statue of Christ atop a church overlooks and protects the city. I took a S line train and then a mini bus ride to get to the tallest point where Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor is located. The view from there is amazing.
Come for the theme park, stay for the view. Located near the giant tv tower (Torre De Collserola) on the mountains near the city skyline, the church, the theme parks are all a nice touch but its the view over the mountains at sunset that will give its special touch
An amusement park on a mountain, overlooking Barcelona and being overlooked by a church... does it get any better than that?
