Fodor's Review

One of Barcelona's two promontories, this hill bears a distinctive name, generally translated as "To Thee I Will Give"—referring to the Catalan legend that this was the spot from which Satan tempted Christ with all the riches of the earth below (namely, Barcelona). On a clear day, the views from this 1,789-foot peak are legendary. Tibidabo's skyline is marked by a neo-Gothic church, the work of Enric Sagnier in 1902, and—off to one side, near the village of Vallvidrera—the

854-foot communications tower, the Torre de Collserola, designed by Sir Norman Foster. Do you have youngsters in tow? Take the cute little San Francisco-style Tramvía Blau (Blue Trolley) cable car from Plaça Kennedy to the overlook at the top, and transfer to the funicular to the 100-year-old Amusement Park at the summit.

El Mirador de la Venta. You may come here for the great views, but El Mirador de la Venta has good contemporary cuisine to accompany them. Pl. Doctor Andreu s/n, 08035. 93/212–6455.

Mirablau. This bar overlooks the city lights and is a popular late-night hangout. Pl. Doctor Andreu s/n, 08035. 93/4185879.
