Tibidabo outfit - The cat, you and us

Hello from the heights of Tibidabo!

A couple of weekends ago we paid a visit to Tibidabo, one of the mountains surrounding the city of Barcelona. It is also one of the most iconic viewpoints in Barcelona, with its classic funfair. We hadn’t visited it since 2010, wowzas! besides the 8 year gap we also had another excuse: my mom was spending the weekend with us and she had never been in the Tibidabo.

The Tibidabo mainly consists of a modernist church (build in two separate floors!) and a funfair, that’s been there since 1905. It started with a few attractions, the oldest still up is the airplane from 1928, and was gradually converted into an amusement park. Around 10 years ago (more or less), the city council of Barcelona decided to keep the old attractions in a public area which is what I call the funfair, and then the newer ones as part of the amusement park with a 28 € ticket entrqnce. Although, being completely honest here, I am a scaredy cat and have never ridden the cute ferris-wheel or the panoramic aerial railway, which you can both see in the pics!

The church in the back is really striking, specially with the Christ the Redeemer on top, as a Rio de Janeiro look-a-like. I think the ferris wheel look cuter on 2010 (watch pic here), since then they have painted it all white and the carriages all in one color. This is like a simpler look but I preferred the retro touch.

You can definitely tell that it is still kind of cold in here, just to have a better picture, I was wearing a t-shirt underneath my shirt.

It takes roughly 1 hour to get from our home to Tibidabo, of course this is when all stars are aligned and the transfers match: we need to take up to 4 different type of public transport including a large variety of metro, train, cable car and a bus. The cable car is quite the experience, and it makes you feel like you are on a getaway out of the city, it was so much fun.

My outfit: jumpsuit is from Zara (this season, so you can grab it too) and shirt and oldie from Primark. The head scarf is from Madewell, which I bought a year ago in New York. The link doesn’t make sense anymore, however, if you jump to their site you’ll find uber cute bandanas from this season.

This is the classic panoramic aerial railway that will get you a pretty unique view of Barcelona.

I was extremely disappointed to learn that they have changed the cotton candy chart for a crepes chart, with pre-made buckets of popcorn (not even fresh!). How can a funfair be complete without a big pink cotton candy and a shiny caramelised red apple? Wonders! Hope it was a seasonal change, and in summer they have reestablished the good stuff.

Have you ever been to Barcelona? Which is your favorite viewpoint? I’m sure that we still have lots to discover, for instance we have never been to the famous “Carmel Bunkers”, well… next time?

    Ah this makes me want to visit Tibidabo again because I totally missed the funfair! We did go right up to the church at the top though which was absolutely beautiful.
