Funicular de Tibidabo - train - out of service until 2020
Funicular de Tibidabo mountain train. The  Funicular de Tibidabo mountain train to the Tibidabo amusement park is out of service until 2020 for renovation. It will be replaced by a newer and more modern version in 2020. 
The vintage blue tram Tramvia Blau that went to the base station of the Funicular de Tibidabo is also out of service. There will be a replacement bus service to take visitors to the Tibidabo theme park, and the Sagrat Cor church where one can enjoy magnificent views of Barcelona city, its coastline and the valleys beyond the city. 

The funicular of Tibidabo hill train was the first of its kind in Barcelona and Spain. The train was built to take passengers to the top of Tibidabo hill, where the Tibidado fairground park is located.

The Tibidabo train was designed by the engineer Bonaventura Roig and was officially opened on the 29th October 1901 at the same time as the opening of Avenida Tibidabo avenue and the Tramvia Blau blue tram that used to connect to the funicular on Plaça del Doctor Andreu.

The plaza is named after Dr Salvador Andreu i Grau, a succesful industrial pharmacist, who had the idea to build the funicular railway to Tibidabo's top to transport visitors to the fairground which he owned.

Doctor Andreu was the first passenger on the funicular train and took  the first journey alone on 3rd July 1901.

The funicular train to Tibidabo base station starts at the 'Plaça del Doctor Andreu' at the top end of Avinguda Tibidabo.
