    Tibidabo, the massive western hill overlooking the city, crowned with a basilica and an amusement park. We decided to go check it out, striking out from our hostel near Placa de Catalunya. We kept walking ... and kept walking ... and walked basically across the entire city, then up a huge hill to where the funicular railway began ... only to discover that the train wasn't running that day (it closes midweek). So we walked up the rest of the mountain, and when we finally got to the top, sunburnt and parched, exhausted but triumphant, we discovered that the amusement park was ... closed. D'oh! But the view was worth the climb, and the vending machines were still operating so we could snag some Bio Frutas Tropical.

    Visitors should visit Tibidabo, the moutain behind Barcelona; it has a great view. Also check out the illuminated foutain downtown called Montjuic. I also enjoyed the Flamenco show at the Spanish Village.
    Tibidabo provides great views of the city day or night. The Spanish Village is a 'tourist' spot but well done. They have recreated the various types of architecture found in the different parts of Spain here. The fountain is amazing how they light up the water in different colors.

    The mountain of Tibidabo can be seen from all Barcelona. You can notice a high mountain with a church on top. The church is called 'Sagrat Cor' and was built in 1961. At the feet of the church there is the oldest luna park which have ever existed in Barcelona (some attractions date from the 20's). The 'Parc d'Atraccions del Tibidabo' is still alive and the views of Barcelona from here are really amazing.

    Christ on top of the Temple del Sagrat Cor

    You can grab a lift up inside this cathedral, then climb a few steps to the top, just underneath this brass statue of Jesus Christ.

    The Tibidabo Basilica, stupendously sited. Its outline is visible from just about anywhere in Barcelona.

    This television tower was built for the 1992 olympics. If you are not afraid of heights take the glass elevator to the observation platform (560m above the sea level)
