Tibidabo

We're being watched…

Mount Tibidabo is said to watch over the city. Over 512 metres tall, this mountain in the outskirts of Barcelona is the perfect place to observe the city. Spanish singers, such as Serrat and Loquillo, have written songs about this place. In the early 19th century, this gradually became the residential area with the most upper-class residents. At the time, other construction plans were also underway, to make it one of the most popular leisure destinations in Barcelona. A main attraction is the Sacrificial Temple of the Sacred Heart, which is very similar to the Sacre Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, Paris (possibly due to its location or the landscape, but people from Barcelona do not like to talk about it). There is also the Theme Park, which opened in 1899 and was the first theme park in Spain and the second in Europe. The Collserola Tower is at the peak of the mountain. Built in honour of the Olympic Games in 1992, it boasts several lookout points offering unique views of the entire city.
