Tramvia Blau also known as the Blue Tram

Tramvia Blau

The blue tram or Tramvia Blau was opened in 1901 and takes you to the foot of Tibidabo funicular which gives way to spectacular views of the city of Barcelona. You can then take the funicular up to the top of Tibidabo where the park is situated. The tram was built at the same time as the funicular to improve access to the park. It runs from Plaça de John F. Kennedy to Plaça del Doctor Andreu where you can admire the views before continuing by funicular to Tibidabo park.

As you wind up the steep avenue on the tram you pass many art nouveau and modernist-design mansions which line the street as you climb the 93m ascent. It tends to get busy during the summer months and you may have to queue, however, the service is frequent. Travelling on the Tramvia Blau is a fun way to enjoy the trip to the park and to experience a part of the history of Barcelona.
