Funicular Tibidabo - train
Funicular Tibidabo mountain train. 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 also 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 connects 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. To get to the funicular base station take the blue tram, El Tramvia Blau or the bus 195.
