Tibidabo funicular

Opened the same time as the famous Blue Tram, the Tibidabo funicular was the first of its kind in the whole of Spain, and it is still running today. Slowly making its way up Tibidabo, it offers some spectacular views and turns the climb into a real experience.

Touching Barcelona's summit

Starting from Plaça del Doctor Andreu, the Tibidabo funicular has been working tirelessly since 1901 to take Barcelona residents up to the top of Tibidabo, which is crowned by the Sacred Heart church and its historical amusement park.

The 1,512 metres that separate the city from these natural surroundings can be covered easily by this means of transport, while at the same time, you can enjoy some unique views of Barcelona, which becomes smaller and smaller as the funicular train continues its climb.

A pioneering form of transport

Opened at the same time as the Tramvia Blau, which it is connected to, the Tibidabo funicular is the one with the longest straight route in Catalonia, and in its day it was a pioneering form of transport in Spain.

The funicular was last renovated in 1958 and it still runs as it did on the first day. It is a transport icon and part of Barcelona's history.
