Loved the funicular, great views and beautiful church. Elevator and spiral steps to the top- not for those with a fear of heights

Tibidabo is worth visiting for the view if you go at sunset, you won't get a better view of the city than this and the church at the top is very nice to take in.

Other than at sunset, I have to say that Barcelona is a very average looking coastal city from on high. Beyond Sagrada Familia and the harbour, it's largely urban sprawl.

Most irksome was trying to time the funicular train that gets to the top of the mountain. The website wasn't very helpful nor was the schedule marked on the building at the bottom end of the funicular. It seemed that any day other than Saturday, the amusement park closed and the funicular stopped running well before sunset.

Buses will get you halfway up the mountain when the funicular isn't running and you can get a respectable view that way, but you will need to go into one of the restaurants with a terrace to see the view and they are on the expensive side.

We had been recommended to visit by a friend and it was well worth it for the lovely view of Barcelona and the stunning cathedral on the top. Unfortunately the park was closed when we went but I am sure it is great fun when open.

The main reason we went for to Tibidabo was for the spectacular view from top of the mountain. The panoramic shots look splendid and one can view the whole of Barcelona from the top.

The amusement park rides are available to at 2 Euros each to keep the kids happy, loads of rides for the adults as well. There is lovely church which has no entrance fee (only to top view at @2 euros). There are food stalls and plenty to eat but no choice for vegetarians !

We took the train and bus to reach here - but was worth the journey time !
