The Tibidabo Amusement Park has stood for more than a century on Barcelona’s highest point. It exists in the memories of generations of the people of Barcelona, and continues to be a place for fun, surprises and entertainments, with rides and attractions for young and old, for the wary and most daring.
We can find the Parc del Tibidabo in the Sarrià Sant Gervasi district. This landmark attraction enjoys a prime location which boasts views of the whole of Barcelona from the mountains to the sea. Spectacular vistas which form the backdrop to a modern amusement park which retains its much-loved character. It combines vintage rides from the early days and other high-tech attractions which have been added to cater to the most recent trends. Some of the oldest rides in the park include the Talaia, which dates from 1921 and rises up slowly and gently 50 metres above the plaza below, the Avió, or plane, which is the world’s first flight simulator, and the haunted castle, the Castell Misteriós. The most intrepid visitors looking for adrenalin-fuelled thrills and spills can test their nerve on the head-spinning Hurakan, with its sudden plunges and 360º turns. The church of the Sagrat Cor stands in the Plaça del Tibidabo. It was designed by the architect Enric Sagnier and is crowned by a gilded statue of Christ, his arms outstretched towards the city spreading beneath.
Is the ideal place to spend an unforgettable day out with the family or friends, in a setting with panoramic views of Barcelona where fun is guaranteed.
