El Tramvia Blau - blue tram Barcelona
Tramvia Blau. Blue tram Barcelona. The blue tram was part of the original Barcelona tram system. There is one vintage tram line left and it celebrated 100 years of service in 2011. All the old Barcelona tram lines closed in 1971, except the Tramvia Blau route, which was kept open as a tourist attraction to showcase transport in the early twentieth century in Barcelona and also to provide a nice way to get to the Tibidabo fairground park onTibidabo hill.

The Tramvia Blau tram line takes you from Plaça de John F. Kennedy up the lovely Avinguda de Tibidabo, which is lined with wonderful old mansions. The blue tram does not take you all the way to Tibidabo. It ends at Plaça del Doctor Andreu, (also called Pl. Funicular) where it connects with the Tibidabo funicular railway. Click on the links below to see the Blue Tram route and start/end stations.

Although the name of the service is blue tram, you can sometimes also see a red tram on the route, which is tram number 129.

The Tibidabo fairground opens in spring. The Barcelona Tourist office sells a Tibidabo classic ticket which includes transport to Tibidabo on the Tram Blau and the Tibidabo funicular train and admission to Tibidabo and some rides at the fairground. The combined ticket cannot be bought on the blue train itself.
