Costly as we came in from the outskirts. For 2 in €, 5, into city, 8.6 to Base of mountain, 8.4 one way on tram and 15.4 on Funicular.
Then it got confusing. At the bottom of the Funicular there was no information about the park itself. The screen offered various price combinations but nothing about what you got from this.
##Research it on line##
When we got to the top, we thought what we were seeing was all there was.Oh so not the case!! About 1 hour in we realised there were 2 levels carved into the mountain below us, it looked great but, sadly, we had ran out of time.
We intend coming back to Barcelona at some point and will definitely take my own advice and check it out on line!

Great advice to take S1 or S2 up to Peu del funicular, the funicular up the mountain and then bus 111 to Placa Tibidabo. Even though the map showed 10 stops the bus took us nonstop from the funicular station to the top of the mountain, same place that the more expensive cable car stops. The park is loads of fun for children, but we adults found the elevator in the church and walk up to the top of the tower to be most compelling. There are ticketed rides but we ignored them for the outstanding view and interesting grounds. The local wildlife is attracted to the human food, such as wild pigs.

Nice view of the city and church there is really good. One can also use the amusement park if with children! From the top of the church one view France boundary on a clear day as told to us by a local guide.

We've been to Barcelona several times and never went up on Mt. Tibidabo. Finally on this trip we did, and WOW, what a view! It takes a bit of effort to get there (HOHO bus, tram and funicula) but that's all part of the fun. Get to the top and have a glass of Cava. The kids can go on the rides in the hundred year old amusement park. You'll all love it!

A must see and do if in Barcelona. We took hop on hop off bus to get to area then took a trolley car up the hill where you see mansions lining the street. Then you take a Funicular the rest of the way to the very top of the mountain. Sounds like a lot but it is not and lots to see on way. Be sure to look thru coupon book that hop on/off bus gives there are coupons for some of these attractions. Once on top there is an amusement park which is facinating, it is sitting on top of this mountain and the a temple which you can pay a little extra once in temple and take elevator and stairs to top. The views are something to see and the temple is beautiful. There are bathrooms and food service. Another great experience. We stayed a little later and trolley stopped running, if this happens just cross street from stop and a public bus will take you down.
