The best views of Barcelona can be found only at Tibidabo. Tibidabo is located in the Collserola park, which forms the boundaries of Barcelona, a city between the mountains and the sea. So, firstly, before you arrive in Barcelona, you should book an apartment on casamona.com, where you will find a wide selection of bright, nice and stylish apartments with amazing views. After you settle into your apartment, pay a visit to Tibidabo, a place which offers a beautiful view of the entire city, as it is located at the highest point in Barcelona. Also there is a small but very beautiful church. Tibidabo gives you the most incredible view of the city and getting there is really half of the fun!

The Casamona team decided to go there because we don’t want to miss out on anything Barcelona has to offer! We packed our lunch, water; put on our most comfortable shoes and we met in Plaça de Catalunya at 11am. We then took the train L7 (brown line) until the last stop called “Avinguda Tibidabo”. From there you can choose one of the several ways to get to Tibidabo, either an hour and a half’s walk, biking or taking the bus and then a funicular (a type of cable car that goes straight to the top of the mountain).
